I just completed this CD/DVD storage cabinet. It is made of solid red oak with red oak plywood for the door panels and 1/4 MDF for the panel that separates the two sides. It is two-sided and spins on a lazy susan. The “tower” stand 4 feet tall and is about 16 1/2” wide. I used biscuits to join the carcase of the unit and had my first experience with pocket hole joinery for the door frames. The pocket hole jig is a neat tool and the end result is a solid sharp looking joint. The shelves (14 of them) are 1/2” oak plywood with an applied veneer strip to the edge that shows. The finish is Minwax golden oak and I used Minwax wipe on satin polyurethane to finish it off. This was my first use of a wipe on poly and I am not sure yet whether I like the results. It is great for applying the poly to the vertical surfaces. You don’t have to worry about drips, assuming you don’t overapply it.
The “exploded” picture gives you an idea of the parts involved. This is a gift for a brother and sis-in-law.
