i am planning on making my own. still toying around with some ideas, but i believe i am gonna use PVC pipe to frame it. i think either 1/2" or 3/4" will work fine.
i only have a power conditioner and EQ that are rack mountable, but I want to incorporate my 2 powered mixers into it, along with a storage place for cables and such. i will paint it all black when finished and put some type of casters on it.
i am basically gonna leave it open on all sides for better cooling. probably just a top shelf and bottom shelf, but open on the front, back and sides. i will use the top shelf for sitting an amp on.
for the storage area i will probably use a plastic milk crate that's painted black. the type of crate that hold 4 gallons of milk.
i am thinking the milk crate on bottom, then the power conditioner, next the EQ and the two mixers towards the top. i am thinking i will leave enought space open to add another couple of rack mounted units, should i get something else. total height around 36-40"...
i might get started on it tomorrow. too hung over today to go buy the PVC.
i will post a thread on it when i get started and take pics...
i'm not sure how much it will cost. the pipe is cheap, the fittings a little bit more, but i have decided to go this route so i can get the mixers in some type of rack. they are too wide to fit in a normal space rack so that's not an option. plus i want the portability to move all it at once.
i've seen pictures of a guitar stand that someone here made out of PVC and that's what gave me the idea...
Scroll down about 2/3 of the way. He's got a section on building boxes, racks, etc.

Unless you're just doing it for the satisfaction of making your own, you'd probably come out cheaper to buy a new one, or even better if you can find a used one.
thats nice if you can find something used but no one makes a live in case (or any case really) for a peavey valveking head. so i built my own, cost me maybe 50 bucks and its a tough sob. of course i got the carpet, side handles, and plastic corner guards for free... so try to collect stuff like that wherever you can find it :P

I'm a bit of a pack rat so collecting stuff def helps me out with projects. Now, remembering where I put everything, thats a different story.
