Author Table Top 33HP Euro Case from IKEA for $16

Inspired by various IKEA case threads I took a look around my local IKEA the other day. My awesome wife found this http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30142965 picture frame. Taking two of these, removing the glass and backing, inverting one and placing them together will get you this case.



Usable width is 33HP, plus a little bit. I have managed to get 34 HP out of mine because the mult on the right has its jacks enough on the left for the front panel to overlap. Modules are screwed directly into the wood after drilling pilot holes so as to avoid spitting the wood. Power is supplied with a long Ribbon cable I made with multiple IDC16 connectors on the box side going into my Doepfer G6 PSU. You can see the ribbon in the top of the image. I put Vinyl "bumpers" (the same as used on cabinets) as feet which takes pressure away from the ribbon and prevents the case from moving.

This box may also work for less money and time http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/96469609 I will try it next time I am at IKEA

This makes it harder waiting for my second A174 to arrive from Noisebug!

Your wife has a good eye for spatial relationships... and possibly a good eye for special relationships as well. I've never met you though.

Seriously though, that's impressive work (the case/frame)!

That is very nice & a tasty bit of IKEA hacking! Basically the perfect footprint for a killer little performance rig like that grin
