That stash of plastic (on PVC) reminds me of this picture I saw once...



I'll help with a Photobucket audit. It'll only cost you ten discs of my choosing.

only took 2.5hrs to make sure 600ish (less whats bagged) was in my photobucket and accurate. I found two discs that weren't catalogued and three or four that were sold and just not deleted.
I need to add those two but the rest is accurate!! Virtual vaults are a lot of work.

Take a blow torch or a lighter and one of those break off blade box knifes, Expose the whole 4" blade and heat it. It will slice right through those pool noodles.

if anyone builds one of these (because a few people have contacted me lately) PLEASE POST PICTURES!!!
I may need to build a second one if my sale thread (hint,hint) doesn't go so well...
I think my wife would probably kill me at that point.

No adhesive used. I actually expanded it by three levels so adhesive would have been a death trap...
I may have shrunk the uprights from 10 to 9 inches but I don't think it would have made a tremendous amount of difference in the overall..
any more questions, feel free to pm me
Thanks for the input and inspiration here... I just finished up two racks: a large one for myself and a smaller one for a friend.
  • 1.25" fittings from USPlastic.com
  • 1.25" schedule 40 10' pipe from Home Depot
  • Risers: 9-1/16"
  • Lengths: 29-15/16"
  • Depths: 5"
Total cost (material, tax, shipping) for the 4x1 shelf was $74, for the 8x2 shelf was $202. The album linked below has pictures of the spreadsheets with complete cost breakdowns.






Full picture album here:
https://picasaweb.google.com/1067013...10/PVCDiscRack

Some lessons learned...
  • USPlastics.com was the least expensive site I could find for 1.25" furniture grade PVC fittings.
  • Schedule 40 PVC pipe is 3-4x cheaper than furniture grade pipe, and easily sufficient for this purpose.
  • Making the length segments ~30" works very nicely with 5' or 10' pipe segments.
  • You're going to be cutting a lot of pipe, I made almost 150 cuts. A decent mitre saw makes this really fast and easy. Be sure to account of the width of the blade when measuring and cutting.
  • Making the risers ~9" (vs. 10" as others have done) is sufficient to provide 0.5" clearance on the largest 9" diameter discs and will save you overall height.
  • On schedule-40 pipe there will usually be an ugly line of printing, when assembling make sure you orient the pipe such that the printing is facing the back so it won't show.
  • Assemble all the horizontal shelves first, then put the risers in one level at a time and build your way up.
  • No adhesive necessary, and probably a bad idea anyway if you want to expand later. The fittings are plenty snug on their own, in fact you'll probably want to use a rubber mallet to get the pieces all flush.
No weather stripping on mine for now, not convinced I need it yet.
