Thread: DIY vinyl record shelf

    DIY vinyl record shelf

    Sup DJF,

    I got a little bored so I made a small shelf for vinyl.



    It's made from MDF and wood using dowel joints. Unfortunately I don't have any build pics, but it's fairly easy and quick to knock one up in an afternoon or two.

    I'd estimate it can hold somewhere near 30 records in the top section and about 50 on the lower shelf. The small front section can be used for holding the sleeves of records that are playing.

    As for the dimensions it's about 750mm high. Depth was a major factor when designing it because I intend to put it next to my console and there isn't much space.

    Anyway, what do you think?

    Thanks! I just put it in place today and loaded my record collection in it.

    I did put a few screws here and there to make it sturdier, and a detachable sheet of plywood in the lower section to support the records.

    pretty impressive you used dowel joints; better for a smooth finish - especially in a box for vinyl. How long did this take you?

    A day or two? I happened to be out of screws and had a bunch of dowel rods. I've never been particularily good at it though.

    And I'm lazy when it comes to countersinking.

    Makes me laugh (at myself) anytime Iím asked that question about my DIY projects, Ďcause I usually have NO IDEA.😄 Itís not like I have a time clock, and usually work on the projects in fits and starts. If youíre working on wood projects, you have glue and paint drying times and such. And since I donít have an indoor workshop, I have to work in my garage, so I might have an hour or two on a hot Summer day when Iím willing to work out there, or during the Winter I might do nothing for days because the garage is too cold. Projects that really only take a few hours of actual work time might take me weeks... or even months.😄

    I know that one; waiting for days for it to reach over 6 degrees so the paint has a chance of setting
