Ah, the ubiquituous IKEA LACK table, that quasi-classic affordable side surface which we ourselves have owned in many colours throughout the years. Yes, it's not the sturdiest, but it's affordable, making it perfect for hacks like the LackRack, a network rack screwed onto the back of a LACK table (the idea is sold with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, but we quite like the idea).
"...the LackRack is the ultimate, low-cost, high shininess solution for your modular datacenter-in-the-living-room. Featuring the LACK (side table) from Ikea, the LackRack is an easy-to-implement, exact-fit datacenter building block. It's a little known fact that we have seen Google engineers tinker with Lack tables since way back in 2009.
The LackRack will certainly make its appearance again this summer at eth0:2010 Summer."
