Plans for custom DVD storage rack?
 
I was wondering if anyone had created plans for a custom DVD storage rack, and would like to share, or sell a copy?

Thanks in advance.

If there is a rag shop in your area, check out the wood work there. You can put something together.

This is bar *none* the funniest thing I've ever seen on the forum!

OMG - this is the funniest thing I've seen in a long long time!! I can't stop laughing.

Someone made a custom rack out of PVC pipe, and the plans were either on this forum, or the hardware forum.

That's just about as funny as the Spider-Man cover.

it helps if you identify your needs
-how many dvds do you want it to hold
-how much space do you have-
-whats your asthetic preference?
would you prefer something low and wide or thinner but floor to ceiling?
-do you want the cases exposed or would you rather have a closed cabinet?

There is one problem, with these: anything that's wider than a standard keepcase will get smushed by the lid (i.e. Boogie Nights or Pulp Fiction Special Eds)

Other than that, these are excellent. Perfect for Keep Cases, and they stack wonderfully.

Here's the link provided by the maker of the PVC Shelving that littlefuzzy mentioned. I've had this bookmarked for some time, waiting to move to my new apartment where I plan on making one of these.

Thank you to the designer for keeping this page up!

I just found the link to the PVC DVD RACK the other day and was already planning to go to Menards or Home Depot tommorrow to pick up all the PVC!!! I can't wait... No more DVD's on the floor! :)

Tarantino, if I may ask where can one find plastic storage tubs like the ones pictured? I could use a bunch of those to store most of my DVD's which I'm embarrased to admit are presently kept in paper bags.

HistoryProf 02-09-04 11:01 PM

while Numanoid's plans are indeed the funniest thing i've seen in a while, i don't think you're going to have much luck getting "plans" from anyone. I built a shelf, and am almost done with a newer, bigger one....but the plans are all in my head and I just kind of figure it out - maybe do a quick little sketch just to keep track of how many feet of boards i need and stuff.....do a search and look through the "post pictures of your home theater" threads....people often post pics of stuff they made.....and here's a recent one from otterland....

Wal-Mart, K-Mart (I've gotten them both places), almost any Department store would probably carry them. Rubbermaid Photo Storage Boxes.

Thank you. I try to check that thread, but missed that post. That is something that I think could be done fairly easily.

You couldn't afford a cardboard box or two?

seriously...i'd love to see a picture of that....are they just on the floor? in the closet? why paper bags? :)

namlook 02-10-04 11:03 PM

It's kind of fun to stack DVD's in a decorative way - like a house of cards. It looks cool too and no need for expensive shelving. :)

leecrane 02-11-04 12:13 AM

Thanks Buck for the info - I went to 2 Kmarts today, a Target and a Walmart and none had those particular type of storage boxes, although I did find some generic Rubbermaid ones that could have worked. But I want them all to be consistent and like the look of the ones pictured, so I might just order them online.

What do you think I'm rich Brizz, cardboard boxes are way too expensive! No, actually, the sad truth is I'm just lazy and never got around to organizing my collection better...

I would like to eventually get one or two large DVD racks to keep upstairs out of view, but there are space issues. For now I'd at least like to move most of my collection into plastic bins so I can move them around, store them away, etc.

Here's a pic of how they are presently kept:
Embarassing but true

These are upstairs in my bedroom. I have more stored this way in my closet. My favorite DVD's are displayed in the living room with an inexpensive shelving unit bought from Home Depot.

leecrane 02-11-04 12:22 AM

namlook - :lol:

atari2600 02-11-04 12:49 AM

how can you tell which dvd is in which bag? and it doenst make for easy access to the ones at the bottom.

Do you mind sharing the link with us here? I have nearly 900 DVD's and I need a lightweight large storage solution like the PVC plans appears to be.


Never mind I notice the link in the post above yours!
