But to me a cd always had one advantage over an MP3 file. The MP3 file didn't have the beautiful cover art that the Cd had! But then Apple came and introduced their wonderful coverflow setting.
And I have to say I instantly fell in love with the design behind it. It was so much better then the standard Cd stands where you can only see the side of the album and you have to take it out if you want to enjoy the album art. Well that changes today because in this instructable I'll be teaching you how to make a Coverflow inspired Cd stand!
This project started a while ago when I came across the ishelf concept made by Chinese designer Li Jianye. Therefore I take no credit for the idea, that belongs to him. However it was just a concept so it was never made. That's why I needed to figure out how to build it while trying to keep it as easy as possible. I quickly thought off the idea of drilling and sawing out holes for the CD's in one piece of wood and attaching that piece of wood to another piece of wood for the bottom. Thus making a clean looking and easy to make Cd stand that would also look real nice.
This instructable will show you how to make a coverflow inspired Cd stand. It's really easy to make and will probably cost you less then an hour off work. You also don't need that much tools or materials making this a free or fairly cheap project.
