I bought a Synchronika, and I'm looking to set up a coffee station now. I need a cabinet (that the wife will like) that's between 30-40 inches in length, and 20-22 inches in depth, I would also like it to have a drawer. Can you show me what you have, where you got it, and maybe a picture? Trying not to get divorced. Thank you :D

I'm in the same boat as you. Got a Lelit Bianca over the weekend and my partner did not seem too happy about the loss of counter space. She loves the look of it, but would prefer to look at it somewhere else. So, a coffee bar in my basement office seems like the way to go. If you check out the thread below, you'll get plenty of ideas on a coffee bar setup. It's a long thread that was started in 2007, so best to start at the last page as it's more likely that you'll be able to ask someone a specific question about their setup.

Post a pic of your home espresso setup...

Or let the wife pick it and don't worry about where the water comes from.

Go to your local Home Depot or Lowes and look for an open box, 36" wide kitchen cabinet. I bought one for about $100. They also sell countertops in butcher block and fake marble, or you can buy a professional countertop. The butcher block, if you choose it, needs to be sealed in Varathane, which takes time because you paint it on, let it dry for a few hours, lightly sand, repeat twice.

Do you think this will hold ... e-machines - like these, I am more worried about the weight of these machines? Do you already own one? what type of machine do you use it for?

It's a little larger but I went with an ikea kitchen island for mine. ... -20359154/

If you want something more industrial Home Depot also has a nice workbench. Photo for example:
