    I've had one in my basement for 39 years and have never used it. People use a miter saw with a nice stand.

    To do your own built-ins, all you need is a way to make square cuts.

    You lay down the first board (I put it on a 2x4 frame to get it up off the floor). Before you tack it down, you screw in (from the underside) 7" risers every two feet. Then the next board screws to the top of those risers. Offset the risers by 1/2" every layer, so you can drive screws from the bottom and top. Continue until you have enough shelf space.

    When you get near the top, screw in a few L-brackets to the underside of a shelf at the point where you can catch a wall stud behind your shelving.

    It ain't rocket science. (See post #9)

    There's some under the turntable and some more in a cabinet right next to it. But the majority of my vinyl disappeared from storage at one point. Apparently one of my cousins took them from my grandmothers house. I never found out which one, but I have my suspicions. I rarely buy or even spin my vinyl that often.

    I picked up a good copy of that Herb Alpert record at the Goodwill the other week. I used to always look at the cover decades ago so I now have one of my own.

    No? Gee. Thanks.

    I haven’t the time nor space to facilitate a project of this nature. Sixty-hour work weeks and inner city living mean I’m happy to out source. I’m getting some more estimates this week. I’ll be sure to ask them if they anything about rocketry before they measure.

    That's fine. If you have the money, why not?

    Hell, order all your meals delivered and pay somebody to walk the dog too. You can always start enjoying life when you retire.

    $2800. I used Closet & Storage Concepts. I believe they’re a national chain. Their rep was super helpful. She helped me go through four different designs before I settled on one.

    My cds are stewn everywhere, and I'm finally thinking of doing something about it.

    You done good. Looks fantastic.

    PS - Install some earthquake clips though.

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Here's their website:
    https://closetandstorageconcepts.com

    The rep came out and measured, gave me a design, we tweaked, gave me another, we tweaked. I eventually gave her a third design that was very different than what I first had in mind. No problem. She put together a design. Everything they make is custom. It took the installer about three hours yesterday morning to put it in. If I need to add on, they've got my design and specs.

    I also had California Closets come out and give me a design. They were a little bit pricier but had more options. But both companies provide the same basic service.

    Super happy I went this route. I haven't had all my music in one place for a very long time.

    And, yes, I did take a second to sit and admire it yesterday.

    They gave me a new machine at work, and it doesn't have a CD drive.
    Now my dilemma is deciding between buying an external CD drive myself for $15-$20 or so, or bringing home my few dozen CDs and adding them to the CDs I don't have shelf room for.
