Step 1: First Cuts: the Back and Shelves
I cut the back of the stand so that it was at a flat 24 inches long. I then cut three shelves from a piece that was 24 3/4 inches by 13 3/4 inches wide. Made the shelves 4 1/2 inches wide by 24 inches long.
Step 2: Prepping the Back for the Shelves
I made small slits in the back of the stand that would allow me to slide the shelves into place for added stability. I covered the back of the stand and the shelves with black duck tape so that it was completely covered.
Step 3: Piecing It All Together
Then I slid each shelf into its slot and helped it stay in place using some green Duck Tape to add some color and pop to it. After making sure the shelves were sturdy, I cut two strips at 6 inches wide by 23 3/4 long to create the sides of the stand. Attached with green Duck Tape once again for color and helped stabilize the shelves further with duck connecting it to the sides. Then came the fun part, testing the strength of DVDs on the stand. Though I've not filled it entirely yet, I've tested them on each shelf and I don't seem to have any structural issues, but I do have a pretty cool duck tape media stand.
For this stand I used 3 rolls of Black duck tape and almost 1 roll of green,
