My daughter was getting ready to head for college and needed a cabinet to house her vintage stereo. Since size/weight was an issue I constructed the cabinet into pieces that are held together with Minifix (KD) fittings from Rockler. This allows her to remove the stereo and dissassemble the cabinet when she has to move. The wood used is oak and oak plywood. The first photo shows the complete upper unit containing the stereo and the completed bottom section.
The next photos are the bottom unit that I just completed for albums and drawer for cassettes, D3 brush etc. The bottom unit is on casters so if she has to move it in her room it will make it easier. The drawer uses soft self-closing full-extension slide from Lee Valley. I used biscuit joinery for the trim to plywood and used Miller stepped dowels for joining the drawer pieces.
Update on the stereo cabinet. I moved my daughter into the USF campus for the summer session and was finally able to get the two cabinets together. See the first photo. She was very excited to have it in her room and we subsequently went to the local used record store and picked up a few more. As you can see it full of records.
