due to my in experience, has anyone ever built the cd/dvd tower offered through rockler??? they offer the plan for free and the question i have is what is the best way to apply screws in the base of the unit so it does not wobble. with it being 6 ft in height it seems that it would wobble. the thickness of the wood is 3/4" thick and is there a certain procedure that i should follow to fasten the screws???

I just looked at the plan and the screws are put in from the bottom. Using flat head screws, properly countersunk into the bottom will not cause the tower to wobble.

thank you pop!! does the length of screws matter? should they be a few inches or not even that?

Refering to figure 2 of the plan the bottom is made up of two pieces (D & E) stacked and the main box (C) attached to them. I would use yellow wood glue between C & D and 2" flat head construction screws countersunk below the surface. To attach E to D use yellow wood glue & 1 1/4" flat head construction screws countersunk flush. The location of the screws is indicated on the drawing. Don't forget to drill pilot holes for the screws.
