This is a dvd/shelf stand that I made from maple. It is made out of 1×6’s and the bottom piece is a 1×8. It stands 4 ft tall. I left it unfinished so if someone wants to buy it they can get it finished how they like it. Although my wife will probably want it when I show it to her.

Just a couple observations, Nate—

How is it for anti-racking? I see no cleats or back.

If it sits against a wall with a baseboard, could a DVD fall backwards behind it?

With a flat bottom like that, is it stable on a carpeted surface?

(BTW, I noticed that curved base in the lower right corner…or are you curling your photographs somehow to mess with us?)

Very elegant.

Thanks for the comments. Lee the curve in the bottom corner is how the wall is. So the piece at the bottom is curved it didn’t have anything to do with me taking the picture. It was taken in my parents house. It acually sits really good on carpet to.
