DIY Hifi Rack "How to" available
This is my first post, seems to be a great forum!
I am looking to build a hifi rack (for 4 solid state units) similar to the one in the attached photograph. It looks like it is made from MDF.
Would anybody be able to tell me where I could get plans, a step-by-step guide, or some general pointers in building a rack like this? I am ok with DIY tasks, but have limited experience in working with wood.
Hopefully I am posting in the right place.
Whilst not wishing to dampen your enthusiasm, the design shown might not be the best one for someone with limited wooodworking experience.
It probably relies on patent fasteners, such as threaded inserts, properly driven into the right sized hole. The end result is usually more-or-less strong enough for the job, but only if the fastenings are fitted quite precisely.
The other issue with mdf is finish. It's a very smooth, flat material, no visible grain, so finish needs to be flawless to not look clunky and duff - usually finishes are sprayed onto mdf. Edges need to be cut very smoothly and then radiused with a router or spindle moulder.
One possibly easier approach might be to make the shelves out of nice looking ply, edges sanded, then possibly stained and waxed, with wooden columns bolted through with threaded rod and a nut at each end, which could be sunk into a recess and hidden if required.
Good luck, I hope you manage to find a way to do it to your satisfaction
In spanish and other design, but well explained. Perhaps can help you:
