That's legend! The scoundrels won't come to Rep. of Ireland... maybe a trip to Belfast might be in order this Christmas.

GBP£9 for a rack is hard to pass up... slap in a couple of rails and that's all you need... I fecking love that place.

Awesome... I bookmarked that page for future reference.

On a different furniture note, this morning I finally found the design I need to neatly hold my LPs and my DJ kit! I'm so excited. Seriously. I've been looking for a design like this for ages:

Anybody in the greater Seattle area I would recommend the Boeng Surplus store. I'm a cheap bastard unless it actually makes a noise, so I spent all of $25 on the desk. At that price you're not afraid to hack it up a bit, tore off 6 inches here and there to fit.

Surplus stores in general I think can offer a better deal than IKEA for the actual desk, almost everything there is 1/2" fiberboard.....

Hey, I own one of these, but my rack-box is standing on top of it instead of being integrated. 8)

Check out this site:

Much more configurable, and even with shipping it'll work out about the same...

Geeze. I've been looking for simple wooden cases like that for ages.

Thanks for the link. At this point my inner cheap bastard has taken full control, and I've decided to go for the traditional 8 cube Ikea Expedit turned on its side.
