Height should allow for 8" from top to bottom..that will give you about 1/2" to work with (custom packaging). I have a custom DVD rack and was measuring just last night to build another.

Okay another question concerning the construction. This is wine rack that will be gutted a carosel built in it. My question is concerning the construction material, is MDFgood enough or should I use good stock ply wood such as pine or ash? Is 1/4" thick enough for an 19-19.5" round shelf that will be split in four and probably 3-4 tiers high? Thanks again
FWIW I found that about 15 dvds will fit in 9" space.

I would be concerned with "bowing" with a 1/4", unless you have plenty of support for it. Pine is okay, but I would recommend something a little stronger or thicker if you go with pine.
