Vinyl lovers storage unit and DJ console

Materials: Expedit and Molger legs

Description: Simple !

I took a 5 x 1 Expedit, put it on its side and installed some 10 inch Molger cabinet legs (they go beyond the back a few inches).

The key to this hack is reinforcement. When I use an Expedit I always put it together with wood glue. Makes a huge difference. The Molger was attached to a piece of scrap wood that I grabbed from As-Is for $1, then attached to the Expedit. I used gorilla glue and bolts. It is sturdy and there is no chance of collapse.

Lots of style and storage for $80

Enjoy !

    If you were to fill this full of vinyl I would be worried about sturdiness. We use an expedite for our vinyl and it bows a little under the weight. You may want a third leg in the middle for more support.

    I think this looks great, and I like the legs. The two light colors and the way it is built make it look clean and chic. Good job!


  4. I like this idea and might try something similar for my young adult daughter, who is getting ready to set up a DJ station.

    I think that the legs are so that it’s at an easier height to spin records.

    Why the legs? It looks like it would fit the space better without.
