Default Good looking, good working blu-ray/dvd rack?

Hey guys, ive been looking around for a good blu-ray/dvd rack, what is most important to me is its looks and design....,in other words I don't want one that has slots that fit the average sized DVD because many of mine are not average sized. Also it would be nice if it did not have a shelf on the floor because BDs are so thin it would be hard to see them.



Give me some ideas guys, posts pics of your blu-ray holders.

thanks

I'm not sure what you're into as far as style and what the dιcor of your home theater room is like, but I got these floating shelves from Ikea for $20-$30 and made my own shelving system out of them:



You can see my TV peeking out of the left side of the image, and you can also see the top of one of my Polks.

I also installed power outlets in proper places so I could charge the Wii remotes and Logitech keyboard.

...and yes, that is Houses of the Holy.

I'm not fond of use-specific furniture, so I recommend the Billy bookcases from IKEA. They're clean, simple, easy to assemble, paintable and CHEAP.

I have one of those! They rule.

I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced
diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning,
if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while
doing stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

I got mine from Ikea. I started removing the last row of VHS and DVDs to make room for more BDs. I got 6 racks line up vertically.

Nice work.

Mine is just a simple wall cabinet I built out of birch plywood. I'm still trying to find the time to paint it, the cabinet below it, my TV stand and a wall shelf...

Theyre like 6 bucks a rack, not very expensive. I actually have to go pick up a couple more. I usually stock up on them and keep stored and add as needed. I started off with 2 then moved to 4 now im at 6 lol Damn this bd addictions

I really like how you installed the adjustable shelving. I assume you've got one of those punch-down drill setups that does that (I don't know the name of it, but they're cool). I used one once to build a tiny end table/shelving unit for my master bedroom, and I couldn't imagine trying to build anything legit without it.

I really like those and debated going with that instead of what I have. The wife wanted something a little more decorative, although I preferred what you have. Both are good in their own ways.

Hey, Rob, nice 30mm GAU8 round from an A10 you got there. I've got several myself, as I used to service Piper Impacts back in the late 80's. We supplied the aluminum rod used to make the shells. Pretty cool stuff.

I've had at least 50 people ask me what that is, you're the first that knew.

I also have a couple of shot glasses made from them and polished up.

Not yet. My shop is still on the low-tech side.

I used a piece of pegboard to get my spacing, and a bit with a drill stop. But I have access to a spindle drill now, makes a 30 minute job a 2 minute one.

Spindle drill! That's the name of it. I could not think of it for the life of me. That would make a lovely addition to any shop. One of these days...

That was really smart of you to use pegboard for your spacing. I'm going to start calling you Rob Vila.

I've learned all kinds of cheats, tricks and work arounds in the cabinet biz. Also comes from wanting to build the things I see the guys on TV build, but not having their budget for tools.
