This is the second of two stands made for the neighbor. His wife has a gazillion DVD's and the walmart stands were not up to the task anymore. Clean, simple design. Easy to construct EXCEPT for all the dowels. There are 56 dowels that you don't see - 4 in each crosspiece. Solid oak, dyed then 1 coat of a mix topped with 4 coats of GF armor seal satin. One stand will hold right at about 300 DVD's (regular size case) if you cram them.
