I am building a corner desk, to go in my office, along two walls, both of which are dot and dab walls. The desk will be for myself and my younger brothers, so it will have 3-4 computer rigs (PC, monitor, peripherals, etc) so I do not want to be worried that it won't be able to support itself.
I will be purchasing an oak worktop (https://www.worktop-express.co.uk/wood_ ... ktops.html) (4M X 620 X 40mm). They offer a cutting service, which I will be taking advantage of, as I do not have the tools to cut it accurately, nor create the joint (Butt Joint). The two resulting pieces are as follows:
- 2.5M x 620 x 40mm
- 1.5M x 620 x 40mm
The main issue I am running into is how exactly is the best way to support the desk. I am planning to use steel X shaped legs (https://www.thehairpinlegcompany.co.uk/ ... 3739181190) (H:71mm x L:58mm) for each end of the L.
As well as this, I will be running wooden battens along the wall, fixed into the wall using Corefix PLUS30 fittings (https://www.screwfix.com/p/corefix-meta ... pack/401hg).
Finally, I will have a leg where the two pieces meet, i.e. under the butt joint.
- 1) Will this support be sufficient?, if not what can I do to improve it?
2) I plan to use the corner of the L to house the PCs themselves, is this a bad idea? As I feel perhaps that is the weakest area of the desk, due the joint etc
3) If you have any remarks please let me know
