Table top studio rack

This is a question about studio furniture. I hope I'm in the right forum.

I'm looking for a studio rack that I can place on top of my desk underneath my display. The closest thing I found on the web were the Nice-Racks 4 unit models, which seem well constructed.

Does anyone have experience using the Nice-Racks? Do you think they would be suitable for the aforementioned purpose? Can you suggest other options?

Thanks in advance.

Why don't you build it yourself ?

Would be much more cheaper,
Will have the number of units you want to (you can't buy 3 units racks)
Can have an angle or something
Wood.
Your choice of color
Entertaining/DIY

Here is a topic I opened about the building of a much more complicated rack (with an angle) :

I have built a handful of racks for myself and friends. You will not be disappointed if you DIY.

Not everyone is a DIY guy.
He seems to be looking for a finished option aswell.
If he's got the money and 1week this could be an option, right?
DIY would probably take a week, too.

I'm using 2 of these racks btw, they are top solid and laquered.

Agreed. But here we are talking about taking 4 pieces of woods and some screws, not build an entire studio. Plus, it would only take a couple of hours.

considering those Handmade recording studio equipment rack furniture and pro audio equipment and accessories for home and pro studios.
They seem great. We can't really say more xD.

I have done this, it is very easy. I would just keep it as one unit though.

Actually, if you have the rack gear already you could just buy 4u rack rails + a 2x8 piece of wood, have them cut it into two pieces of your preferred depth at home depot and screw the racks into the ends. The rack gear will keep it in place and as long as you elevate it very slightly it will not scratch your desk.

Thanks for the suggestions!

The one in Germany is ideal, but I suppose DIY would be the best bet. I need to stop being lazy and build something!

Besides the Ikea rack idea (good one), you can buy edge glued panels at Lowes to build boxes for your gear. Either get them to cut them to size or cut them yourself.

Shop Edge Glued Panels & Rounds at Lowes.com
