A simple DVD cabinet is built using plywood sheets, putty, paint or wood stains. Tools needed to build a DVD cabinet include paint brushes, nails or screws, brackets, a saw, a hammer, sand paper and a tape measure.
Calculate the dimensions
Decide the dimensions of the cabinet and the number of shelves according to your needs. Each shelf should ideally have a height of 10 to 12 inches, and the depth should be 8 inches.
Cut the plywood sheets
Mark the lines on the plywood based on the desired dimensions. Cut each part of the cabinet: top, bottom, shelves and sides. Include the thickness of the plywood in the calculations to ensure that there are no gaps and no part protrudes beyond the wood.
Assemble the cabinet
On the inside and the outside of the side panels, mark the points where the shelves will be attached. Nail or screw the shelves first on one side and then on the other. Attach standard brackets underneath each shelf for additional strength. Finally, nail or screw the top and the bottom parts.
Add the final touches
Check the sturdiness of cabinet before completing the final touches. Ensure that everything is fixed tightly. After that, use the sandpaper on the rough edges and spots to make them smooth. Use the putty to fill all the holes and gaps, and let it dry for at least an hour. Finish the cabinet with paint or a wood stain.
