Just want to build a small cabinet to enclose a few tower servers. Nothing fancy - just a shelf on castors to sit the 4 servers on that slides into a lockable cabinet with ventilation of course.

This is just to provide a little bit of physical security to the servers. Keyboard and monitor will be outside.

Got a commercial quote which was eye watering and I would do it myself if I had the tools.

Perhaps somebody can either recommend a cabinet maker/handyman in the Wellington area to make it for me or propose it yourself.

Material customwood, two doors with a basic lock (front door style).

Thanks

I would go to ideal electrical and just buy a 8U dynamix cabinet, then go to mitre 10 and buy some $5 castor wheels, a 6mm drill bit and some M6 20mm bolts. then just bolt the wheels to the bottom of the cabinet.

Nice idea and I will check it out but the castors were for the shelf that the servers sit on so I could wheel them out to get to the back connectors. Having the entire shelf on castors doesn't help unless the back of the unit is open, which means that it's not secure really.

The idea I could slide the servers in and out of the cabinet easily.

Oh i think i misunderstood. 
I was thinking these

attached to the bottom of a tall one of these - which you can get them with lockable panels on each side/back.
