Lego Minidv Tape Storage

Recommended Posts

My grandma's visiting and has been staying in my room, so I've been sleeping in the basement for the past few days. I looked across the room earlier tonight and remembered how I used to make storage racks for my tapes out of the spare Legos from my childhood. Tonight I improved upon my original design from a few years back. Not sure if anyone's done this yet, but everyone I've showed has been hyped on it so I figured I'd post it.

The basic design allows 6 tapes to be stored in each compartment. Here, I made a double model with two compartments. I also used some hinge pieces to allow the entire unit to fold up. It even has a little locking mechanism sort of thing.

I can upload some step-by-step photos if anyone needs them. Just ask

Technically this holds 12. If I had enough Legos I'd definitely make one for a hundred or more. I'll probably end up expanding on this in the near future though

Pretty neat, No real use for a non durable way to hold 12 tapes though. I have a shoebox full or so haha. I definitely don't miss mini dv tapes.

No idea. I've always kept them sideways like this when I'm working on a video, then make them vertical when I put them in the cabinet for long-term storage after the video is done
