For the Record

I had a client who collects records. He has about 250 with plans for more. This storage unit may hold up to 400. The top lifts off of the lower cabinet for ease of moving. The record shelves are built with half inch Baltic birch and the lower carcase is Baltic birch with the face frame and doors being hard maple. Door handles are walnut as well as wood plugs. It was a challenge putting all the shelf parts together, adding dowel dividers and having everything come out square. He was thrilled when I delivered it last night.

(Or something like that!!!)
Great organizer for a devote audiophile!
