I'd like to find a better version of this kind of shelf:
at a comparably reasonable price.
The Home Depot shelves are OK but they are not always easy to assemble and have plenty of very sharp
edges. Does anyone make the old kind of bolt-together shelves anymore? Those took more time to
assemble but they seem less prone to stab/cut the user and as more easily reinforced if one wants to
The purpose of these shelves would be to store LPs organized in heavy cardboard boxes and 10" reels
of tape. Ideally, I'd like a reasonably heavy steel shelf bottom but I know from experience that
these Home Depot particle board bottoms can hold the kind of weight I'd be putting on them, and it's
easy enough to cut a replacement from hardwood plywood if needed. The environment is stable indoor
USA northeast. The material is not "save from the nuclear blast" archival, just part of my
collection. I could make do with the Home Depot option since it's cheap and convenient but if
there's a better quality option for a comparable price I'd take it.
