Default furniture?

This is really mundane but:

I am trying to clean up a really chaotic home office. Wires and machines everywhere...

What I am looking for is a piece of furniture to fit a bunch of hardware listed below. Priorities are dealing with heat buildup, so very well vented (could have a totally open back.) And a conflicting need for doors on this thing because I don't want to look at any of the hardware.

Size should be approximately 30" tall, 23" wide, 17.5" deep. I can go higher vertically, but the width and depth are restricted by access.

Heres the harware:

23" wide format deskjet printer, needs to sit on the surface. This is really the only component I don't want behind a door.

Dell notebook on docking station. Must have access to eject button at rear of dock. Will run with the screen open 3/4" to clear vents next to keyboard.

Mac Mini -- don't really need access to the CD drive. This is working as a server and runs pretty cool

External hard drive maxtor 1 touch

Wireless Router, Firewall, Switch -- triple stack of those blue linksys standard form factor components -- these are ok stacked on each other.

cable modem -- very warm. can't be stacked.

and room at the bottom for all the wall wart transformers for each of these.

Any ideas or suppliers to check out?
