I built this Benchmark Storage or Media Tower as I was looking for some thing to put beside our fire place. I wanted to build some thing that would be about the same height as our fire place so it stands 40 1/4" tall. Also, this month was a the contest to build things from scrap lumber so I took 2 x's that I had laying aorund and cut them down to 1 1/4", then glued together and planed down to make butcher block for the door and top. The sides were actually built from 1 x 6. I also ended up purchasing a Kreg shelving jig so that I could change the shelving. A tool that I highly recommend if you are going to build alot of these projects with shelving. One down and one to go!
