DIY IKEA Server Rack

Need somewhere to store a server in a branch or home office? IKEA's $ 99Micke desk cabinet serves the purpose well with some simple modifications.

As HTDutchy explains in a post over at HTDutchy, assembling the desk without using the back plate allows plenty of space for routers and even a powerboard. Hit the post for the full details.

    More of a cabinet than a rack. Something you could mount rails on would be handy.

    Seems like ventilation /cooling would not really work for this. Obviously not for a server that is actually being used heavily.
