Cheap DIY Disc Shelf

This got a big turn out for FB so thought I would share it here with you'll.

Pic http://www.flickr.com/photos/9090948...in/photostream

Material
(4) 22” 1X6 I used pine…light and still strong
(4) 48” 1” trim
(28) 1.25” screws

Directions

(4) 22” 1X6

Screwing them together with (12) 1.25” screws
(2) ¾” from bottom on inside (1) ¾” from bottom outside
(2) 12” from bottom inside (1) 12” from bottom outside

(4) 48” pieces for trim I used 1” rounded edge so it doesn’t hurt the discs
(1) piece of trim on bottom screwed to the outside of the 1X6 on both sides to make bottom
(1) piece of trim on outside to the 1X6 making the bottom of the trim 11.5” from the bottom
I drilled 2 pilot holes in the trim work ¾” off each end to keep the wood from cracking while screwing


Hope you'll enjoy...pm me if you have any questions

Have you noticed any bowing in the middle due to disc weight?

I just used a cheap old 7' bookshelf...added one extra shelf by drilling some extra holes. But I had it sitting around...
If I were to build one, I'd build it taller and thinner. Let it take up less floorspace.
It looks good though! Good job!

I like it. Very nice. Better than the sterilites and old bags I use for my back-ups and junk.

Can you tell us why you went the wood route instead of the PVC pipe I see so many other ppl building?

My friend used pvc..I used wood because it was free material from work lol...I do have a small bow in the top self that would have been avoided by a slightly shorter shelf length, but was also easily fixed with a brace across the bottom of the middle shelf (easily done since at 5 1/2" the discs dont actually come through the bottom).
