My daughter over at VeggieBalance.com spends a LOT of time in front of her computer and wanted the option to stand up at her desk, especially when tethering her monitor to the camera while doing food photography. To save on floor space and avoid any structural issues with the desk, the best option was to mount it on the wall with a pair of 45° brackets (made of white oak).
The desktop is oak veneer plywood, one layer, but with another layer of the same wood around the perimeter to give it some extra stiffness and a backing for the edge frame made of solid oak. Stain is Michael’s Cherry, and finish is many many coats of Varathane water based poly (hardwood floor finish). The back rests on a cleat mounted to the wall which also served as a convenient spot to attach a power strip. A grommet located on the left half of the top makes routing the cords easier and cleaner than having them hang off the side.
