Description: I had the hardest time finding anything affordable that would fit my stereo components and store records as well. This is what I did to achieve what I needed.
Step 1. Make shelves wide enough to accommodate a stereo receiver and turntable. I had to move the 2 vertical supports over about 8 inches. To do this you must drill new holes for the dowel supports. Just measure over and drill. I believe I used a 3/8 bit.
Step 2. Assemble as directed except moving center supports to new drilled holes.
Step 3. Mount leg plates. I mounted them 5″ from the sides and 2″ from the front and back Lowes has nice tapered legs in stock for $2.50
