Radio Control Transmitter Rack

Here is something I've been wanting to build for a long while now and finally completed.  Partially through the build I thought this would make a great instructable so here it is.  This project is dirt cheap and easy yet helps protect and organize one of the most expensive investments concerning the radio control hobby.  While I geared this project more towards aircraft radios you could also use this for car/truck etc. radios as well as many other uses.  Enjoy!

Step 1: Supplies and tools.

To build this project only a few simple supplies are needed if you already have woodworking tools.

Materials:

3/4" x 3 1/2" x 8'    finished grade pine/oak/poplar/cherry  (you get the idea)
1/8" x 6" x 48"        sanded plywood or luan (I use luan for many projects so I had some scrap laying around)
8 wire screw type cup hanger hooks.  You can get 8 in a pack for $0.98 at Wal~Mart
Woodworking glue
1" finish nails (about 4)
Your favorite shelf hanging mechanism or a couple 2 1/2" drywall screws

Tools:

Safety glasses (didn't think I'd forget that did you?)
Measuring tape
Straightedge
Pencil
A good table saw is essential for making the cuts in this project. 
A router is a nice compliment but not required.
Drill with a 1/16 bit
Hammer
Corner clamps are nice
Small 1/16 nail punch
Sandpaper or sanding block
