As I'm not bad at woodwork, I decided to do my own first modular rack. The once available commercially are usually quite expensive. So I've downloaded SketchUp, a simple 3D designer, started with my first draft and soon had something finished which fit my needs.

At our local market I bought all the pieces needed and started working on my rack. Here are a few steps. At the bottom you can find all the details in case you would like to build it yourself.
