The madness has taken hold, and I've been drafting up a novelty DVD cabinet. (See attached)
I got to 2400 high, which is fine for my place, but I realised that would be too tall for most houses (2400mm ceilings) I'll rescale the unit to a total height of 2300 high, which should allow for cornices etc. and will make this a weekend project in about 2 weeks time.
It is deceptively simple box construction, and I'll complete a "How to" PDF file to go with it.

It does look like some DVDs in the corner post would not be directly accessible. Like you'd have to remove some to get at the ones on the side farthest away from the metal plate you added to stop them falling over.
Hey, I've never been the best problem solver, but is this a workable idea? Instead of hinging the entire corner post, you could leave just the edge bit attatched, so that when you hinge those bits out, the shelf ends aren't obscured. I've made some very crude annotations to the pictures to see what you think:
Now I'm not sure if this presents problems for the locking of the post, as with nothing to slot into it might swing too freely, but I should think the little round bit at the top would hold it, if it were a reasonably tight fit. Anyway, sorry if I'm not being helpful or seeig the flaw in this idea, but just thought I'd say as it was the first thing that came to me and felt you might be able to implement it.
