I needed something to move my modest collection of LP's (only about 150-160 at this point) from my living room where my turntable was for 35 years, to my office where it lives now. Also on the feature list was to store them in a way that I could browse by looking at the album cover rather than turning my head sideways to look at the edges. Looking that way and pulling them in & out was excess wear, and made harder with albums in plastic sleeves.
Found one style on the internet that did what I wanted and was affordable at about $300, but it was plastic laminated particle board and I want none of that in my home anymore. Also don't want the edges of plywood showing layers, and a good quality look of near-furniture. I sent my son the link for the purchased one and asked if he'd take on making one in his woodworking shop. He'd never built anything like furniture, just simple shelves, birdhouses, and decorations. Somehow on one of his woodworking forums he found plans for one made from a single sheet of 3/4" thick 4'x8' MDF or plywood.
My choice was to buy finished birch plywood as it's readily available and reasonable cost. Added in matching edge banding (from Oakwood Veneer), some light oak stain, semi-gloss polyurethane, and he bought a "hidden screw" jig that can put wood screws at an angle to make them easy to hide, and very strong. Now just waiting on a set of 4 casters I bought, two straight, two swivel with locks. I should have it home this weekend.
