Just a little addendum to this thread. With some of the extra gear I've bought since building the floor rack, I needed some extra rack space, so I have built a straight 18U rack to sit on top of the floor standing unit.

Simple butt joints, using wood glue only.





... and finally, in place with the gear installed.

Do you find beans work as well as sand as an inert non-transmissive filler for equipment stands?

Dunno man, but they do keep the wood of meh desk

I've found one of those special cheap shops near me that sell plasma lamps etc so it won't be long before I'm in the new place, and the 'mad lab' will be setup

I just thought I would add that hummfrees/buzzfries are indeed still available. If a little more pricey these days.

Beware, MDF is carcinogenic so don't breathe the dust when you cut it!
Resin W is, as they say, "Stronger than the wood itself".
You will get a super hard finish using Hammerite.

Have a look at CPC http://cpc.farnell.com/penn-elcom/r8...2mm/dp/EN82283
or Protex if you are buying a quantity. Maplins are too expensive for most things.

You have to use a dust mask or extraction. No one's gonna be able to hold their breath while cutting and then wait for the dust to settle.

Also if you get somewhere like B&Q to cut the panels, measure before you take it back. I never once got an accurate cut from them.
