Cut the bulb end off a scrapped chrome faucet supply pipe. The 3/8" outside diameter pipe can be bent by hand into a C-shape, and tied to a vertical support. You can store about 15 CDs in each inch of rack, so this one would hold over 100 CDs. Use cardboard separators to keep order.

To use it, stick a pen into the end of the pipe and slide the stack of CDs onto the pen until you get to the one you want. After you slide off the CD you want, IMMEDIATELY stick the pen back in the rack and return the unwanted stack to the rack. (I'm always sorry if I try to do anything else with the stack on the pen.)
