I’ve been needing a place to use my computer that is not the dinner table. After a lots of sketches and a number of false starts I came up with this design. The dimensions are, work surface – 30” high, width – 36”, depth of cabinet – 16 1/2”, height of cabinet – 10”. After laminating the leg blanks, I cut a taper (2 1/8” to 1 3/4”) on the table saw and then used a 1/2” round over bit on the router table to round the legs ending in a lamb’s tongue near the top.
All the lumber (red oak) came from Home Depot. They always have a great selection of 3/4” boards. I did need to laminate two 1”x3” to get enough meat to make the legs however!
I may go back and add some cubby holes at some point but this has gotten me off the dinner table and on the right side of my wife… I also have a place to store my software.
