|DIY LaserDisc & LP Massive Cabinet, Shelf, Rack|

Here is a new project, that I'm working for a quite some time. I did an add-on to my B&O TV rack last year, where I store all my LaserDiscs but I kind of running out of space. Also, up until now I did not had a propper shelf for my LP's.
Talking about storing LaserDiscs and the type of shelf, that should store them, you would probably agree with me that it has to be very stable. That's why there were no other choise for me then bleach wood. And if you think right now on IKEA Kallax or Expedit .... just forget about it. In fact my first design was based on this shelfs, I just shorten the width of some section to prevent bending.
... it's kind of functional but very borring.
Second [and final] Design
Excuse my inacurate scale on this one. The width of the center section should match the outer one. I did some other designs, but ended up with this as my final one. Here you can store heavy LaserDiscs in 17 cm sections while placing some LPs in 29 cm by adding some additional stages. 48 cm section can take audio systems, LP Player or LD Player. Or just cram that badboy full with LD&LPs.
width: 120 cm
height: 121,8 cm
depth: 35 cm
The outer dimensions are based on the standard size of wood plates you can get at DIY market. I didn't wanted to cut a lot and the dimensions of my update to B&O TV rack left no other choise for me.
Beech wood have to dry several weeks
Continued work on dried beech wood
This shelf require a lot of connections. That leads to more then 100 bore-holes
The thickness of the boards was not exactly 18mm!! It's varies between 19 and 20mm :( It would be not a big deal, if there would be not so many connection in between, which in sum grow up to 4 or 5mm. I don't know if it came already from the store this way. I did not measured the thickness cause I relied on the information provided by the manufacturer. Lesson learned :/
I got 1.2kW circular saw that can cut beech like butter. I need to cut of 1 to 2 mm of some edges to make whole construction fit perfectly again. It was kind of a pain in the a**, cause I drilled already almost all boreholes for the dowels. Now I have to put them 1 to 2 mm deeper in to the boards so they can still clamp.
Always excited when it comes to the first assemble. How it looks like in real? Realy nice!!!
This shelf is so heavy, I can not cary it myself :D
Now just only the back plate is missing...
but wait... I think, there more ideas coming up ... stay tuned ;)
... to be continued

Ach ja dieser Arikel 13 bockmist, inwiefern betrifft das deine Beiträge in zukunft! Wird's das ganze hier nicht mehr geben? Wäre schade, denn das hier ist irgendwie ein " Link" in die vergangenheit!||

| ||Guten Morgen! :) Das Team an sich gibt es, in der Größe wie vor ein paar Jahren, nicht mehr. Ich bin einer der Wenigen, der noch zur Conventions hingeht. Schau doch mal unter "credits". Es wird aber immer wieder Berichte, Fotos & Videos aus der Vergangenheit geben, da ich noch tonnenweise unverarbeitetes Material habe. Deswegen liegst du mit dem "Link" zur Vergangenheit, nicht ganz so verkehrt ;)||
