Desk Support Answered
Hey boys and girls. Over the past couple of weeks (due to work, mostly) I've been building this computer desk, the original here, and a slightly modified one. I've built it using 3/4" MDF and have it painted a gloss black, similar to the modified version.
I'm currently stuck on what to do for support. In the original, he uses file cabinets and some scrap material for supports. In the slightly modified version, he uses desk legs from Ikea.
I'd like to do something simple, but I'm kinda lost. I've had two ideas floating around my head for a while but I was wondering if their were any other suggestions y'all might be able to throw at me.
First, I was thinking about making legs out of chain-link-fence style posts.
Then I had the idea to suspend it. Attaching a cable to the front "bulge" on each side (see pic.), and attach the other end of cable to the wall. Using a piece of 2x4, or the like, screwed to the studs in the wall to support the back edge's. (I hope that makes sense).
I'm thinking suspending it might work, but would require a bit more work.
The idea of a floating desk sounds really cool, but I can't think of another way to achieve the effect.
Any thoughts on getting this thing off the floor, minus the saw-horses, will be greatly appreciated.
