    I've been using the Lack bench for several years now and I've had a valve amp and a big heavy Sony ES amp on it without any issues .



    What you see on it in the picture are a music server , a Rega Brio R amp , a Rega DAC , a Sony Blu Ray player , and a Virginmedia box . I had the Plasma TV on it for a while with everything else on the shelf underneath . Seems pretty solid to me
    I also use Electric Beach Rockin'Rollers under the server to very good effect http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/electric_b...53.m1438.l2654

    The wife picked it mate Previously I had a single big leather recliner but my daughter uses the room when I'm working to socialise with her friends .
    The picture doesn't tell the whole story Jamie as this is an extension with a V-shaped wood clad roof .
    However , I'm pretty happy with the sound I've got in here

    yep me too..... bought 6 x lack square tables ......drilled the top plates and filled with urathane foam the aerosol type...did same with the legs. They become very stiff but remain very light. 2x top plates were used as bases to sit 2x tables on top the remaining two had there legs cut to about 1/3 height and sit on top of the full height ones ....yes I know a pic speaks a thousand words....

    I know this is a bit old, but I'm looking to create a couple of 'racks' out of Lack tables.

    Can anyone advise how to cut the Lack legs? I'm not much of a woodworker. IN the past, when cutting lengths of square-ish (eg 2 x 2) timber, I always go wonky despite my best efforts!

    Any advice, please?

    best thing to use is a cheap b&q chop saw or practice your cutting by hand

    Remember they are hollow. You need plug feet to fit in hole. I got mine on either eBay or amazon. They cut easily using a circular saw on bench. I lined mine up at right distance clamped and cut them at one pass
