Vinyl Record Storage

[email_link]

[avatar user="tonyw" /]My son collects vinyl records (yes, that's a thing).  He asked me if we could make storage for them, I jumped at the chance.  He decided to go with cabinet grade red oak plywood, edged with black walnut.

First step, trim the plywood with the walnut.

He collects EPs (10") as well as 12" LPs.  So we decided to include a couple of smaller shelves to hold the EPs.  Routed groves for the sides and dividers then squared them up with a chisel.

The sides, top and bottom used about every clamp I own.

It was too large to assemble in the wood shop.

And, installed in it's new home.

Drew also wanted a small, wall mounted, stand to display the "now playing" album.  We had some stock left over, so why not?

    Two thumbs up. One for you, tone, for making the cabinet and one for your son, for keeping vinyl alive. tc

    Tony, looks fabulous! After thoughtful consideration of the posted materials, I can give you the following grade: 33 1/3! Great idea for the display shelf for currently playing disk. Nice job; Drew is lucky dude.
