I ended up just taking 2 relay racks, spacing them appropriately, and
bolting them into place.  Cheaper than a nice cabinet and much much easier
to break down and move.

Plus, finding a real cabinet to mount my drive trays is hard, I'd need
something as deep as a 690 or SC1000 cab.  With a pair of relay racks you
can space any way you like.  If you're concerned about air ducting, get a
sheet or two of 4x8 plywood and cut to fit on the sides.
