If you’re looking for a cheap and easily customized rack for your audio visual and stereo equipment, this clever hack turns IKEA Lack tables into a cut-to-fit stereo rack.

IKEA Lack tables are, either by chance or design, the same width as AV and rack-mount computer gear. In this mod IKEAHacker reader Eric Shook needed a cheap and simple AV rack with clean lines. A little measuring, sawing, and bracing later, and he had a custom rack that fit his components perfectly. Should he need to adjust things in the future for a taller or shorter component he can swap out the existing legs with new ones made from the left over scrap.

Hit up the link below for his full build instructions and additional pictures.
