DVD Rack-Finally Done! (Large Pics)

I finally have the finished product. I have needed something unique to hold my 450+ DVD collection for some time now. The rack is made of pine and poplar. It is finished in cranberry red milk paint in order to match with the old style antiques we have in our home. You can view the pics at my webpage, or below:

Hope you like!

Looks like you're going to have to build a new one soon.

Looks nice but it appears you already need more shelf space!

Very nice. If you don't mind saying what is the height , width and depth of it? Looks like something I would like to have , but probably cut in half.

Tell me about it. We figured it would hold close to 650 standard DVDs, but by the time you add the box sets, etc... I can probably add another 100 DVDs to it, if I eliminate the spaces and use the sides to the full extent.

It is 7'3" tall x 6'0" wide. Depth is different from top to bottom. The uprights are tapered, so the top shelf is 6" deep and the bottom shelf is slightly more than 8" deep.

A couple of weeks, working nights and weekends.

Wow, after seeing just how big that Cylon head Battlestar Galactica set is, I'm glad I got the 2004 re-issue.

Where's your Star Trek Voyager sets?

And no Babylon 5 or Stargate?

I've got a 6 shelf system that's 28.5" across but deep enough to where I can "double row" if I need to. But I also have a 5 shelf system that's 9.5" across that hold alot of my double-alphas and small-width box sets. I also use one more single shelf that's 43" across which I use to hold my Star Trek, Babylon 5, and Alien Quad sets. By the time I get all the Voyager sets, and the last few B5 sets, I probably won't be able to fit the Alien Quad set on it.

I'll post some pics later.

You have all 3 seasons of Angel, but no Buffy. What gives? Nice rack, I like the color that you chose for the finish.

Very nice! I'd like to have something just like that only smaller. I need it for the overflow as I have filled up three cabinets and looking for a third cabinet or shelving type unit.
