Betty, my beautiful wife sez to me, we need a CD/DVD cabinet. Ok…. 2 years later, I was looking at wood products in a home improvement store and ran across these stair treads (made in china of all things) that were 4’ long, 1+ inch thick and about 11 1/4” wide with a machined bull nose on one edge. Hmmm, I said, CD/DVD cabinet… Eight of these boards, one 3/8” 4’x8’ sheet of birch plywood and away we go… The bottom drawer (made of pine sides and ply bottom) holds about 80 vhs tapes while the top holds over 100 cd’s and almost the same in DVD’s with space for sets. The CD and DVD holders come from Rockler. I finished it with minwax walnut and Johnson’s Floor Wax… ; )

Nice project. FYI it looks like the saxophone is in the stand backwards.

I wish the pix were big enough to see your project details . Did you resaw those 5/4” stair treads for the sides and dividers , or are they still bullet proof to protect your video / audio collection ?
Are you the sax player ?
I love great sax !

The dividers are ripped finished 1×6 off the HD rack. I jointed and planed them a bit to bake them a little more graceful. The stair treads are as is and I kept the bullnose to make it less angular. I used 3 treads glued together (ripping the bullnose off of the one in the center) to make the door and the front of the drawer so the grain would continue. I cut off the piece for the front on the drawer and then split the remainder to make a left and right door. I am using spring loaded magnetic catches to hold the doors shut.
Fun project and not too $$$.

I really thought this project would be a winner. It is inexpensive and fills a need that lots of us have. The pictures are larger so details can be seen. It’s amazing how much media this cabinet holds for the foot print.
