Ok, ok. Adam probably kept his garden trimmers in a shed in Eden too. You know, the ones he ordered from Earl May, before they slowly went away.

I have used a wooden cabinet from this company for about 5 years. I got a mission style cabinet that holds about 640 CDs or 250 dvds.

Jesus' shed was probably square, but I'll bet he was a good sport about it.

I'm the same way. If I would have my movies ripped on a hard drive, I'm not sure I would actually purchase many of them laugh Plus at 50G a movie, that can become costly on top of the price of the BD.

Thanks David. Yeah, I've seen cabinet in this style but I'm not really confident in these doors holding movies. I would think that with all the weight the hinges would start to rip the cabinet or the doors would start to start to warp. How is it working for you?

I would suggest Ikea as well and not only the Besta (which I also have) has the capability of doors being added. You have to look quite thoroughly to notice the other series that can accept doors, drawers and such.

I had a closer look at the Ikea site. I didn't realize befor that the cabinets could be customized like adding shelves, doors, etc.., interesting. When I select a frame, it comes already with shelves. Do you know if the shelves can be set to different heights, meaning, would I be able to puts shelves space just high enough to fit DVDs or Blu rays and then buy more to fill up the rest of the cabinet?

Yes, mine have rows of little holes where you put little metal tabs that hold up shelves. The holes are about 3.5cm apart. But some of holes can get used up by the door hinges, so it is not 100% flexible.

You can always drill a hole where you absolutely must have one if there isn't already one at that position.

This piece of furniture is solid! The doors are filled with CDs and have been for five years. I would think that they would weigh more than movies since you can put fewer movies in the same amount of space. Anyway, the hinges are holding up great. I chose the model with the louvered front look, not the mission style that I mentioned previously. I would recommend it. I will probably be getting another one soon as mine is filled to capacity now.

Another thing that I forgot to mention is that the cabinet ships fully assembled.
