Here's a clever woodworking project to help kids manage their growing collections of favorite movies, video games, and music. This custom carrier serves as both a dresser-top shelf and a portable box for transporting DVDs from room to room -- or even taking them on vacation.

What you'll need

  • 8-foot-long section of (1 by 6) pine board
  • Saw
  • Drill
  • 1 5/8-inch drywall screws
  • 100-grit sandpaper
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Decorative handles

How to make it

  1. Step 1

    Cut the following pieces from the 8-foot pine board:
    Two 16 1/2-inch sides
    Three 8-inch back pieces
    Two 11-inch ends

  2. In each side piece, drill six 1/8-inch holes for the drywall screws, as shown. Then screw the sides to the back pieces.

  3. Step 3

    Set the assembled pieces upright, then center an end on top and screw it in place, pre-drilling 4 holes. Attach the other end in the same way.

  4. Use sandpaper to slightly round the edges of the wood. Then prime and paint the holder. When it's dry, attach decorative handles to the ends.
