A pedestal tower I made a few years ago for my Sister-in-law Karen,, had lots of requests for more but this is the only one I have made,, one of a kind…
Recycled hoop pine, teak stain, routered grooves .. space for 270 cd’s and a couple of doubles.
Real pain in the a** as to the execution of this project.. nearly burnt it. but in the end was happy with it as was Karen and her friends.

I commend you on your effort to rout all those grooves. As you say, it makes this a one of a kind piece. If you wish to fill the other requests you received, you might want to take a look at the CD tower I made. It has shelves instead of grooves and will save you lots of work. That assumes you don’t care to go through all that effort again. I like the rustic or country look to your piece. Great job!

I can see why this project was a pain to build! Looks great and holds more than I thought it would until I saw the pic with the doors open

Great project! I desperately need to make something similar for our CDs. Thanks for the inspiration!

Nice cabinet. Not too fancy, not to plain. Amazing capacity.
