So I needed a place for all my records and turntables…but didn’t want to spend a fortune on buying something at Target or Wal Mart.
So my girlfriend and I built one ourselves. The project started out as a shelf for clothes…I wanted 9 14×14 inch squares so that the several plastic mail carrier boxes I have would work as drawers. But as we were trying to optimize the amount of wood and lower the cost we ended up on a 2×3 setup with 16×16 inch boxes.
So the 2×3 16×16 inch size works well because you can get almost all the pieces out of one standard 48×96 inch piece of plywood. We found a cheap piece of wood at Home Depot and they cut it to our specs…for free!
All in all the total project cost was under $70
Bolts + Nuts + L-Brackets:$15
