It always ends with random stacks of discs everywhere not put back. I know that this is my failing...but sometimes you have to work with what you got. Although, I have a feeling that this rack will lead to the 7YO throwing new USDGC rocs all around the back yard...sigh..

You can always build one of these for taking to the field with leftover PVC too. I built a rack like in this thread, but I also have a large storage box for my collectibles. It is nice having easier access to my useable plastic.

I went on a long quest to find a place to store my discs (I probably have about 120 or so). I ended up at the container store, which is typically overpriced, but if you can't find something there, you won't be able to find it at any other brick and mortar retailer. After about an hour of searching I ended up finding that your typical 9x9x12 shipping box is the best bet. It fits about 20 +-2 discs, and costs about a buck fifty (1.50) per box. Maybe not the most permanent solution, but easily the cheapest. The next cheapest thing there cost 30 bucks and held maybe 30 discs, so I feel vindicated.

OK. So I finally put all my discs onto my rack and snapped a pic. I modified the original idea to make use of different (and smaller) fittings, and it definitely doesn't have the same rigidity. I haven't entirely given up on my idea yet. I am going to glue the pieces together except for the top row so that there will be a little more strength but still room for possible expansion in case the glue works like I hope it will (if I ever get that motivated, that is).

I have build several PVC disc containers, if you have a drill it is way easier to just use sheet metal screws on the PVC than using glue. It holds just fine and if you need to pull them back apart a screwdriver will do the job.

Here she is. Gonna add 2 more row for the discs that didn't fit. Top row figured I didnt need to close it off, just made those with scraps from poor planning... They will be easy to pull off. Also, as I was building, I thought maybe I should have had 4-ways for the bottom 3-ways and 5 ways for the bottom 4-ways. Have the extra hole point out and put a capped 3-4" piece of pipe sticking out to aid in stability. I might be able to do it if I turn the whole sucker upside down when I expand. These are not easy to get apart once you pound them together.

Also, half that top right side is pearly discs/pre barry, 1x valks...I dont have too much old stuff.

I tried a row of 8" height pieces. So the bottom is 9", second from bottom 8", and all the rest 8.25". The best part about the open top is stackability. Pro-Rhynos bend too easy so I will probably keep them all lying flat.

Saved about 160" of PVC building it this way, guess thats really only $6, lol. The good thing is the 7-10 inches in height savings.
