Thanks, cabinet took a lot of work. Ordered a normal China cabinet from wayfair, before building it I refinished all surfaces because I didn't like the stock color. Changed the number of shelves and spacing, ditched the flimsy shelf mounts for better ones. Once but built I put a bunch of steel L and corner brackets on to stiffen/stregthen everything. Had custom half inch glass made because the eighth inch stuff wasn't going to cut it. Replaced the solid back with steel mesh, used rubber grommetting around the holes I cut in the mesh for passing cables. Custom mounted 9 apc headphone hangers to the top and 2 on the side. Custom mount for the 2 nixie clocks. Magnetic lock to keep the kids out. Fixed the door so it shuts properly,

There may be stuff I'm forgetting.

But if you don't mind the work you can repurpose stuff for not a lot of added cost, and have something that fits your needs perfectly. The main expense I had was the custom glass, but I could have made wood shelves for cheap.

I was going to say it looks kinda like a server cabinet with all the black, the glass door and the steel mesh back!

I actually looked at those, for the spot next to my desk in my office they were just too deep. I'm also not sure my wife would have gone along with the look. But if you have the room and can get one for a good price a rack is easily adaptable
