Organizing with IKEA furniture

I moved recently and haven’t had much time to work on YardBot, and part of the problem is that there is no easy place to have my motherboards, power supplies and motors. I had the idea to grab an IKEA table with casters and use it so that I can wheel it around when not in use. One trip to the store later, I had one of these.

Since my computer case is industrial and intended to mounted, I just flipped it upside down and screwed it to the underside of the table top. With only the fan as a moving part, it doesn’t really care about orientation.

Who knows how long I’ll be able to use it as the project moves along, but for now it’s a good way to declutter.
