    Sup guys, so Ive wanted to do this for a while and was using a make shift one which wasnt the right size, i scrapped it and decided to build one my self, how hard can it be I said? Not owning a jigsaw or proper equipment, i drew my idea with the right measurements and popped down to b & q and got some furniture board for £22, they sold brackets for silly money like 1 for 1,50, so went to screw fix (10 for £1) and started this ting!
    Stage 1: No jigsaw, took focking ages!

    The (Finished) thing! Its not a well made piece and if i do anything like this again ill know what to do in the future, but it was fun and it fits it purpose completely. Total cost around 25 quid. 20160122_143723.jpg

    Virus sits snug. Im gonna order some rack rails eventually, not for the virus but for other gear.

    Hope this gives someone an idea for there setup, with the right tools this would be simple.
