I designed this piece due to the need for DVD and Blu-ray storage. When I started designing it I decided to incorporate storage for CDs as well. Each drawer can hold about 70 DVDs or blu-rays, about a total of 350 discs. The top most drawer can be reconfigured to hold about 150 CDs. I chose to carve or shape a design into the drawer fronts. To me the design appears to be a smiling frog. At first glance most seem not to notice the smile. I also designed the handles to match the cabinet (Purpleheart and maple).
I decided to use full-extension drawer slides, wouldn’t want to have to remove 5 or more DVDs just to get to the one I really want to watch. Cabinet is made from Walnut, Maple and Purpleheart.
24” D x 22” W x 47” H
I have another set of drawers already made for a matching piece. I told my wife I could make one with a sad face for its partner. That idea was quickly turned down. I haven’t decided how I will design the next one. I just know it will somehow match this one.
Before someone asks, no we don’t have enough DVDs / Blu-rays to fill the case, just planning ahead. :-)
