While it's fun and curious to own a specialty cabinet for storage of
any format of one's musical treasures, I still find it easier, less
expensive and sometimes even more satisfying to concoct a 'reservoir'
of my own design out of a vintage piece of furniture.
I thus have done quadruple duty with one old sideboard: the right side
now has vertical plywood dividers (copied from an example in a 'real'
cabinet) to hold 30 15-1/2" discs; the center drawer, which apparently
was meant to hold bottles, holds 60 or so 8-inch discs arranged
alphabetically, with title dividers, and on the left side, 60 88-note
piano rolls arranged alphabetically on top of each other, but with one
essential difference: the horizontal rows have very stiff thin sheets
of art board between the rolls. This allows removal at will of any
roll box without disturbing the others. Lastly, the right bottom drawer
holds 22 20-note rolls for my Concert Roller Organ (_not_ a Grand! and
_not_ worth $4000, thank the stars, or I wouldn't have it.)
The shallow silverware drawers at the top hold various interesting
lists, booklets, pictures, etc., and I still have room for something
(more 20-note rolls?) in the left bottom drawer. :-)
P.S.: My son, the animator, just gave me this link to a car
commercial done in real time, though it apparently took more
than six _hundred_ takes to get it right:
Now if we could all take the care with our restorations that
this crew did.
