Building a bin for my records, need help with measurements Answered
Hey everyone, I was planning on building myself (and most likely posting something on here about it) a bin to hold my records and replace the little closet-maid shelf I have from Target.
Something similar to this store's shelving is what Im going for rather than a bookshelf type one.
Im not very good at picking materials or factoring the size of lumber into things, this is only my second wood working project and a little more complicated than the craft table I built.
So anyways, what I want to do is have it be 20" high and 16" deep. Width is trickier because I need to calculate the wood + 3 rows that will hold be 12.5" wide to hold the records.
What materials would you guys recommend for something like that? I see they used plywood on one of the ones in the pictures, but the other looks like MDF or something and is routed out so the separators just slide in.
Is there a free program that would help out in this kind of thing (predefined wood widths and all that and something a little easier to use than SketchUp maybe?)
Anyway, Ive tried to draw it out about 3 times and keep messing it up, so I figured I'd ask here.
