If you have a home server — whether it’s a pre-bought model or one you built yourself — you need a good place to put it. Hacker Lauzer put his in a modded IKEA cabinet that keeps it within quick reach.
Why put your server in the closet, after all, when it’s so hard to get to (and there aren’t always outlets)? Lauzer took apart an old set of IKEA Vestby Drawers he found online (sadly, they’re discontinued, but many different pieces would work with this), painted them black, and added some glass to the front to keep the whole thing visible. It looks a lot nicer than the original drawers, but was less work than building something from scratch, so it’s perfect for a quick build. Check out the full post below for step-by-step instructions.
