The SoxChests come in 2 versions: 2-drawer and 3-drawer. Each version comes in two sizes optimized for CDs and DVD/Blu-ray discs:
Chest Outside Dim. (w x d x h)
|22 5/8" x 15" x 28 3/8"||30 1/8" x 15" x 19 3/8"||19 1/2" x 15" x 23"||24 3/4" x 15" x 16 3/4"|

All drawers are 14" deep and the side walls and dividers are 5" high. For details see table above.
SoxChest cabinets are constructed of high quality 3/4” hardwood veneer core plywood. The plywood edges are capped with 1/4” strips of solid hardwood. The drawers are constructed of 1/2” 9 ply birch. Drawer fronts are made from random width strips of solid hardwood matching the capped edges.
No! All the structural parts of the SoxChest are fully assembled.
Once the SoxChest is out of the shipping box all you have to do, is attach the handles with two screws each, insert two dividers in each drawer and place the optional Angled Stoppers at the end of each row in the drawers.
The SoxChests are stackable and are held tight by placing Velcro dots on all four corners that are touching each other. The dots keep the top cabinet from sliding off the bottom one and protect the top surface of the bottom cabinet. If you decide to separate your stack someday you will notice that the dots may leave a residue on the top of your bottom cabinet. Wiping the area with a clean cloth and some drops of mineral spirits will remove the residue without harming the finish.
We recommend using 4 pairs of 3/4" Velcro dots that you can pick up at the hardware store.
The drawers glide open on full extension metal ball bearing drawer slides. The drawer slides are rated at 75 lbs. per pair and a drawer full of DiscSox weighs about 40-50 lbs. Full extension drawers provide the same instant easy access to DiscSox regardless whether they are located in the back or in the front of the drawer.
The entire drawer bottom is lined with a very low pile Velcro® type material (the fuzzy side of Velcro).
The SoxChest will not tip over if you have a drawer full of DiscSox and you fully extend one drawer. However, to ensure stability we recommend you load the drawers evenly. This will ensure that the cabinet doesn't tip forward when you fully extend a loaded drawer (there will be enough weight in the other drawers to keep the SoxChest stable).
Our cabinets are given a hand-rubbed oil finish. This type of finish has been used for centuries and is generally considered to be the finish that best allows the beauty of the wood to shine through. This type of finish will allow many types of wood to darken over time into a deeper and richer color. With normal use, the finish should protect the wood for many years.
Our black finish is not thick like a piano black finish, but rather a black finish in which you can see the pattern of the grain. The SoxChest is spray painted with black enamel and sealed with acrylic clearseal.
Yes. Traditionally, oak, ash and certain types of maple are darkened slightly. Sometimes, cherry and walnut are stained to bring a uniform color to the cabinet, if necessary. Premium wood, figured and exotics are usually not stained. Staining would diminish the natural beauty of most figured wood. Staining is a customer option and adds no cost to the cabinet.
Yes. SoxChest can be built from solid hardwood. Solid wood choices include most types of domestic, imported, exotic and figured hardwoods. Please contact us for a quote.

The shipping costs are calculated as soon as you enter your destination zip code on the "Order SoxChest & Options" tab. Shipping for the SoxChest is displayed at bottom of the page.
The standard back of the SoxChest is a 1/8" plywood material and is intended to be placed up against a wall or another piece of furniture.
The finished back is necessary if you intend to place your SoxChest where the back will be seen.
The casters can support two chests as long as the rating of 400 lbs total is not exceeded.
We strongly recommend using lockable drawers in conjunction with casters. Moving the chest on casters may cause unlocked drawers to open unexpectedly which may most likely tip the chest over.
The locks are available on a per drawer bases and are cam lock types.Note that a lock with an antique brass finish will ship with all chests regardless of selected drawer pulls.
When multiple locks for the same cabinet are ordered, then they are keyed the same. If you require different keys for each drawer, this can be specified via a drop-down menu on the order page.We strongly recommend using drawers with locks in conjunction with casters. Moving the chest on casters may cause unlocked drawers to open unexpectedly which may most likely tip the chest over.
No, the Angled Stoppers are only needed when a row is not completely filled up. The Angled Stoppers allow the sleeves to be accessed from the front of the drawer and hold them at an angle for easy flip through.
When a row is completely filled up the removable angled back holds the sleeves at an 125° angle for easy viewing.
With inset, or flush drawers, the front of the drawer is recessed within the cabinet so its face is flush with the front edge of the cabinet.
With overlay drawer, the drawer front overlays the front edge of the cabinet. The overlay drawer is used more in modern, contemporary woodworking. The drawer front becomes a ‘show’ front. With SoxChest, a quarter-round edge is standardon our overlay drawers. Other types of edges are available on custom chests. Overall dimensions ofboth cabinet types are the same.
