OK, a guy who I fixed a couple guitars for gave me a pair of fairly nice rack units (delay and multi effect) and I don't have a rack. I figure they'll be nice for practicing, and somtime down the road I might buy a 31 band eq or tuner for when I play bass at my church. Long story short I want to build a rack. I have built speaker cabs and an amp head encloser type thing, so I don't think it will be that hard. any tips or trick or anything specific I need to look out for while building this? (BTW I have acsess to as much free 3/4 inch plywood as I need).

Thanks all.

if by rack you mean pedal board then all you need to do is make a ramp and put velcro on it then stick your pedals on it...

I think he means rackmounted effects, like you see on those colossal gear shows?

Yeah, rackmounted effects, I already have two pedalboards, since I build my own effects, the first one filled up kinda fast.

Ok, found a great tutorial, check this out

Cool sites. I have a medium-size aluminum rack my employer threw away... perfect condition. The only rack-mount equipment I have, though, is a crappy old ASI mixer/amp unit we used when we started gigging in HS. Building your own sounds like fun!
