My coworkers asked me if I could make something that would hold our removable hard drives, this is what I came up with.

That’s quite a few hard drives. Nice compact design.
What do you actually do to require so many?

I am an analyst for the USAF and as you can imagine, we use a few computers.

Almost as bad as I customer call I once had. He had around 24 HDDs in one Raid 5 in two different JABODs ( big no no ) That call lasted 4.5 hours. And I did not have to mute him once to call him bad names. It stumped my higher up help but I was finally able to find the problem. One of my better cases.

That turned out really nice!
Mixing computers and wood working is so geeky.
I build something like that for my 8 track tapes a while ago. LOL

cool, what’s the open bottom for? Weight?
How do you keep it from falling over? Screw to the wall?

Jeff NJ, when I was planning out the project I made only enough compartments for the number of drives. Also part of the design was to ensure we didn’t have to bend too much because some of us have back issues; hence the bottom compartment which we use for manual’s. I placed castors so we could move from our storage to the computers and a 3 degree angle kick plate so it would stand properly. I do need to extend the wheel base to prevent tipping.

Nice. I’ve got a few stacks of hdds that could really use one of these. Adding to the growing project list since I found this site.
