I left the back of my rack open, but I put rack rails on the back as well
as the front. I have the power supply and extension power board mounted on
the rear, in the bottom part of the rack. I figure I could cut a piece of
plywood for the back if I wanted to close it. Actually, now I'm wondering
too, should I close the back? I haven't yet because I'm futzing around in
there fairly often.

I just used 3/4" good quality plywood, and it looks quite good.
