I wanted to build myself a new desk.
Didn’t want it to be to big, but a nice size and make it so it could also function as a future dining table.
I had the idea to place the legs aside of the table, for a little extra space ,without a centerbeam or stiles.
I found out its really hard to get the same rigid feeling without those essential supports.
The table feels very sturdy now, but i’m still thinking about adding the extra metal braces on the sides.
The table measures;
66.1 inch length
33.1 inch width
29.5 inch Height
1.9 inch top thickness
4.3×3.9 inch legs
Sanded with 400 grid and 2 coats of Danish oil.
Thanks for watching!

Latest modification metal braces to level the top more out, tigthen it closer to the beam the top rests on and allow movement;
