The DIY rack cabinet (v.2) has finally been moved into its home. Permission was granted for space next to the fridge and it fits perfectly! Its amazing how quiet the bedroom is now!
If you want to make a 19″ rackmount cabinet, all you need are IKEA ‘Lack’ tables, optionally some casters and you have a very cheap and expandable system!
In my last update you may have noticed a link to a DIY homemade rack cabinet. Ive been wanting one for a while, but didnt fancy spending a couple of hundred quid on one from ebay. At the moment I just have a few single rackmount units – switch, raq3 and a load of Dell GX110 base desktop base units. It just so happens that IKEA do a nice unit which is precisely the right width for rackmount components.
