This is my first post, ever. I've been reading for a while now, and I thought it was time to post something of my own. Since, I've been enjoying other people's posts.

Originally, my room had no no shelving for my books or DVD, so I had it made, unfortunately the unit was much too deep for my need, due to the fact that the majority of the books and DVD had to be pushed inside, and I had to keep the ones I watch (or read) the most up front.

But when I wanna watch something else, it was a nightmare trying to look through it all.

Then I ordered 6 bookshelves made to size, the shelves were high enough for paperback (and manga) so I moved most of the books out and left the shelves. Still it was difficult to set it for easy viewing. As a result, I went and hunt for the boxes only large enough to contain DVD and deep enough for the shelves.

There were none, so I had an idea. MAKE them.

this is the prototype, the first one I did.

and the result after. Made from clear future board (corrugated plastic board)

and decorating, because they were so plain. It's Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas.

more stickers.

complete set.

this is how I use them. Easier to find the dvd, since all the labels are up, and the DVD were not heavy, or this would not work.

Took me a few days to construct, since I only make a couple each night.

That's all folks.

Thank you for viewing.

Really nice, especially because you had to make those containers yourself! The stickers look great, although I thought at first that it was all one big picture, but there are actually 3 different ones. Great job! Cheesy

I have been seriously ill. I will get back to everyone to finish up all swaps and stuff. I am home now.

These are awesome! I can't believe you MADE them... and jack is just awesome too. good job!

it is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves, monotonous and un-renewed, it is shyness before all else.

thank you, it took me a while to figure out how, but I like the end result. Each of those contained about 30 DVD each give or take a few (normal size case, more if it's the slim case). And I love Jack, the image made the whole thing less boring.
