    so i made a flexy rack this weekend. i have pics of it in the links to follow. its not really a finished product, but i needed to get my receiver some breathing room, this was the main reason for building it. i have a pic of my old setup as well, i think you would agree with me that it was cluttered. about the computers holding up the tv, they are the only two objects of equal heights that i can find that could support any kind of weight. maybe if i get a better tv someday or a new pair of speakers, i may build another one, it was cheap enough. $18 for the 3/4" 4x8 mdf, $12 for the 4 threaded rods, about $8 for the nuts and washers. note in the new picture, i have my new laserdisc player in it, finally got a 704! hope you like.

    edited link for pics

    Nice job CJ. Some high gloss black paint would really make it look nice.

    What are the dimensions of each shelf? I am still in the design stage of my rack.
     
  7. I think I like your computer rack better :p)

    Now that you got the rack done (which looks good btw), you now need to do something to get those speakers off of the floor!!! [​IMG] How about some flexy stands? [​IMG]

    How strong are those computer cases? I don't know about you, but I certainly woldn't trust two computer cases to hold up my 27" Tube above a Gamecube and a PS2...I'd be paranoid everytime I watch a movie...hell, I'd have nightmares every night...
