Re: [ARSCLIST] LP RECORD STORAGE
Don't use particle board for anything that matters. It warps at the drop
of a hat, screws break out of it easily, no matter what the lenght or
size used, and I have always wondered about outgassing from it.
Awfull Stuff ! Stick To Plywood or good solid - you won't regret it !

Use plywood not particle board. Cost is about the same.
Plywood is stronger, it also does not soak up as much paint, and is
Screws and nails stay in better on plywood.

I have some of these wooden shelves from IKEA - I have magazines on
them, for which they work fine, and 45s, for which they work ok, but I
have to stack them horizontally to use them in that way. I would not use
them for lps, as I do not think they are strong enough, and I would not
think they would work very well if you have very many 78s for the same
reason. What I would recommend (in fact, I am doing this myself this
week, indeed taking a few minutes break from it at the moment) is to get
some 4'x8' sheets of particle board (maybe $12-$15 per sheet probably)
and have the place where you buy them cut them into shelves the width
you would like (mine are 14 1/2 inches, for lps) and then cut pieces the
same width into supports for the ends and middle of each shelf (again,
in my case this was 14 1/2 "), 3 per shelf. Then, with another sheet of
4x8 particle board, cut one 4 ' shelf side off the end, then cut the
remainder length wise for your end pieces. Assemble with screws
or nails - I estimate my cost, with paint to be about $40 per unit, a
unit which is both sturdier & cheaper. If you use screws, you would need
a drill, if nails, only a hammer. Believe me, I am no carpenter, but
these are not hard to make.

shelf,or two,from IKEA,to add to the frames,to store 45s ?

I just ordered an Ivar unit. It's 2 shelves, about 32" wide and 19"
It's solid wood and fine for LPs but probably not for 78s since the
any dividers. I think you can get a 3 shelf unit too, and Ikea does
via UPS. However I don't think this unit is in the on-line catalog,
print one for 2007.

I am using Ikea's Ivar Shelving at home which is pretty cheap and I
think could hold 78s if you get the 17 inch wide boards. Of course
this works best if you have an Ikea store close by.
