Deepcutrich,
I use simple wood boxes stacked vertically on a moving dolly for storage. I made them a long time ago but recently painted them black. Your products look great, but I love dovetail joints. Maybe you could offer them as another option? They would be stronger than glue and if precisely made could be assembled by the user without glue. That would allow you to ship the boxes flat saving on shipping (I would hope). Have you considered molded plastic with a wood grain look? Or using a wood like flooring material. I see several price point options for your customers. Good luck!

That would also be potentially helpful when the owner has a small quantity of records and can't fill a significant portion of the space. Currently, the internal width is 13 1/2 inches wide which generally will fit 60+ records. Would you say your not comfortable with more than a grouping of, say, 30 records in one "zone"?
Thanks for the feedback!


A divider in the center of the cube would be perfect. I see a lot of people's collections with the entire group of LP's in a cube leaning to one side. That puts a lot of weight on the LP's toward the lean side, which can lead to warps. I use the 12 x 12 cardboard spacers that come in LP shipping cartons to fill the unused space in my less-than-full cubes, which holds the LP's perfectly vertical.

Excellent feedback guys. Thanks for the input. The dovetail joint is one we are also fond of. Although the joint we've gone with has been stronger than anything we've been able to throw at it yet, that is a nice looking strong joint. We'll be exploring plenty of those options as we go I'm sure. We're going to try and stay away from molded plastics and stick with wood for a few reasons, but a lot of practicality to what you're suggesting.

On the divider comment, yes, the more we talk about it and the more I hear feedback about it, the more I like the idea, especially a nice wooden stylized version.

Thanks again for all the great thoughts. What a fantastic community this is!

Dividers of wood, what about stiff stainless wire instead? A few guide holes and you could put them where you want.

Hi there! That was me. My current set up is shown below. New arrivals/in heavy rotation go in the metal display rack on top of the bar. I am starting to run out of room though.... :mrgreen:
