  • Anyone know where to get these?

    I make various types of boxes and household items adorned with fretwork or scrollsawn cutouts. I want to make CD/DVD holders, but I can't find the plastic grills/slots like the ones pictured, which I took out of an old computer desk I was replacing, and which I prefer over the type that Rockler sells that tape to the sides of the boxes. If anyone knows of a source for these things, I would greatly appreciate a heads-up. http://flickr.com/gp/lightcraft/04QAx7

      Looks like something that would be easy to make and just my opinion, I think wood would look better.

        Thanks, Rolf. I sent them an email.

        Doesn't look easy to me Oily, and I think it would be pretty fragile.

            Woodcraft has something too...I'm not sure if they still do, but it's worth doing a search on their site...

              Jim, I emailed Woodcraft first. They don't have anything.

                    Thanks, Janette, I'll try Lee Valley.

                    George, I checked Rockler right away since I've used them for many other hard to find things, and they have only a type that tapes to the sides of the box. If it turns out that I can't get the one I want. I will probably have to go with that one.

                      Janette,

                      Lee Valley has several types, none of which is exactly the same, but I ordered a couple to see if they will work for me. Thanks again for the information.

                        I would get some Ebony strips and glue them on to some hard maple and make the spacers on a table saw. They may not be curved. Or take the same maple and mark an arc on 1 1/2 inch maple piece. Then cut them on a table saw like bread. You will get 3 or 4 out of piece of maple.

                          Could build out of wood (perhaps cut pilot holes and use the scrollsaw to cut out the rectangles) and then sand it to curve the face. Use wood that's thicker than the plastic of course, so it's strong. Could use a different type of wood for contrast.

                            In another year we won't have CD's anymore I am putting all of mine that are now in a 100 cd Sony carousel into an MP3 format so that my whole collection fits on an Ipod Nano all I will need is a very small box.

                              Those are made of plastic or vinyl and i used to assemble them into computer desks when I worked at Wal~Mart as an assembler. Everything we got in that had those came from Indonesia!

                                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                                I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
