Full Answer

Begin making a storage shelf for your LP records by cutting 1-inch thick wood into four pieces measuring 14-by-14 inches with a power miter saw.

In two of the square pieces, bore two holes of 1/4-inch diameter on the opposite edges. Position the holes approximately 2 inches from both ends of every edge. Each piece should now have four holes. These pieces form the shelf's right and left sides. Push in wooden pegs of 1/4 inch dimensions in all the drilled holes.

In the remaining two wood pieces, make two holes of 1/4-inch diameter in both the corners of the opposite edges. Position the holes about 2 inches from both ends of the edge. These form the shelf's base and top pieces.

Now, apply wood glue on the edges of the wood pieces with pegs, and push the pegs into the holes of the base and top pieces. Press the pieces together using clamps to secure them, and let the adhesive dry.

Then, using sandpaper, sand the shelf until the surface becomes smooth. Finally, apply wood stain or finish, or paint the shelf.
