Build A Network Rack With An IKEA Table

Whether it’s fate, serendipity or that someone in IKEA’s design department really wanted a network rack he could put a table lamp on, the Lack-line of ends tables is perfect network-rack size.

If you work in a commercial setting then, naturally, you’ll have commercial network racks. Commercial racks are both overkill in build and price for a home user or a small office with only a few rack devices, this clever hack is a great fit.

The Lack end tables from IKEA just happen to be the exact width of a network rack and you can easily screw rack devices right into their sturdy legs. Over at the wiki of eth0, a group that puts on seasonal conferences for geeks to get together and geek out together with projects and information sharing, they have a tutorial for converting your Lack table into a LackRack. Check out the link below for more information and additional photos.
