I have access to the rear so a DIY rack seemed a logical choice and much cheaper. Here is what mine will look like in drawing form. I only needed some minor drawings to go by so these are far from extensive.
Here is a quickie drawing of what mine will look like
The HD DVD player there is actually the Oppo I am buying. I think I will stick with Blu Ray since I am unsure of the future of HD DVD. I can replace the oppo with an HD DVD player in the future if I want.

Do you have a picture of the back side of your rack in your rack room? I would like to see what you have placed the rack on? Some 2x4's or what? Let me know. Thanks a bunch. I am also going to building my rack this weekend and I am building one similar to yours.
Can you also elaborate on your door on your rack. How does it slide to the side?

how are you getting the plates machined, and how are they attached to your rack assembly?

What tool did you use to cut the inside and it's so straight?
