Introduction: K'nex CD Tower

Picture of K'nex CD Tower

This here is a set of instructions for how to build your very own CD tower. I know there's many ways to go about doing it, but for this one, I incorporated the panel pieces. I tried to go for a very compact design. Which is why the width is made up of a blue+yellow rod connection instead of a red. The former creates a perfect width without having to use spacers or any kind of other piece. Not even the blue or purple connectors!

Anyway, on to the steps!

Step 1:

This is the right side of the tower, or the first "block" you could say. You can make as many as you want, depending on how high you want to go. Take note which holes the blue rods go through.

Step 2:

And this is the left side. It's hard to tell from the picture but the lower set of orange connectors should lay horizontally. It'll make it slightly easier to slide the CDs in, as it is a very close fit. The other pair of orange connectors lay vertically, as we'll be sticking a rod through there later.

Step 3:

Combine the two sides by the orange connectors and the two yellow connectors.

Step 4:

Now we're adding some addition pieces to the center. You have one blue rod running through the top orange, a blue/white rode extension in the middle, and on the bottom a yellow rod running off the yellow connector.

Step 5:

Now we build this little section. This gets attached to the backside.

Step 6:

Add it like so.

Step 7:

And you're done! Now you can go ahead and build additional units to stack on one another. And if you want, you can give it those support legs, to make sure your CD collection doesn't fall over. Don't go too high now!
