What about switching out a few of the end 4 ways with some 5 ways, might save you a bunch of material. Maybe the wife wont notice. As your collection grows, you can add to each level. I bet you can put 15+ discs on each off chute and they wont bow at all. Easy way to add 150 discs to your rack without building a whole new one.

I am amazed at what I had/have stored away in boxes.

With plastic discs, I suspect the deformation we see in hot conditions is the result of warping, not flowing. If it were fluid flow that deforms our discs, standing them on edge would probably do more harm than good.

I'm now convinced. Without the stripping there's a decent chance the discs will twist sideways a bit and if that happens they can easily fall through the shelf.

Go upscale: attach a strip of velcro to each side and put a piece of fabric with the opposite side of velcro (loop part on the PVC, hook part on the fabric) to form a little soft hammock. Not tight (flat) across, just a gentle valley of fabric.
