    wow, this is really awesome. I was wondering how to add space for my boyfriend's cd collection (always growing), and this is a very cheap, modulable solution... if i find empty cd boxes.

    ( sorry for the poor english, I'm French. )

    I made one of these racks ! The man of the cd shop simply gave me 10 cd boxes, witch was really very nice from him since i don't think he was allowed to. I had 3 more at home, so it was just enough for a 3 box heigh rack. It was more difficult to glue than you seem to show. I had to make little things to maintain the cds while the glue dried ( folded carboard pieces on the corners of the construction, holded by clothespin.. i'll take pictures for the next racks if you want ), before putting the top box and then before putting anything on the top box. I just managed to get 26 more boxes, and I'll make too more soon. Maybe with a stronger glue...

    wooow,Im really happy you like it and you did it :-) I would love to see the photo of your rack :-) Yeah it is little tricky with glue, depends a lot from glue you use, I used one for plastic that stick good and dry fast. Im really really happy you made it :-) Andrej


    Hi. I like this idea. Looks really cool. The empty jewel cases can be used for lots of cool stuff. I have used them to make picture frames myself.

    Nice project.

    In the intro step, I would select a picture of the finished product (e.g. #10) as the first intro image, because it is that one that is shown in the ibles index.

    Thanx, I did as you said. I gues it is better to see final product, than a  bunch of CDs :-)
