CD rack…

In an attempt to save space in a tiny, city-centre house, I designed this method of wall-mounting CDs.

The CD itself is not a very effective design from the point of view of package handling and storage. Also, the world is already awash with towers and racks and myriad other CD storage systems… so I thought one more can’t hurt.

I particularly wanted to allow easy access to the disks, which meant, in part, the ability to see the box content more easily than by reading the miniscule spine printing.

So, using Gyproc U-shaped channels originally designed for holding plasterboards together, this idea took shape. It’s cheap and works reasonably well but the density of disks makes their removal more difficult than intended…time for another layer, perhaps.
