I am offering my client some options in this computer rendition:
Members at the WoodNet Forums and also at Tommy MacDonald’s 207 forum gave me some terrific feedback on options available to prevent sag of the version with the unsupported top. The “shell version” on the left allows removal of the two drawer cabinets — the cabinets will be on casters, for flexibility in office use.
I seek further opinions on HOW best to prevent sag of the desk top in the “shell version”. I will be mocking up the shell design in a half-size cardboard model; I might even try sitting on it, or putting some selected weights on the top, to determine the weakest point. My guess: the weak point is that closest to the center front edge. Any other guesses?
Please use the Comments section below to leave me a suggestion, or send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
