I guess I could have listed this under “Designing Woodworking Projects”....

When a colleague was cleaning out the office of a retiring coworker, he found a printer resting on this “table” in a cluttered corner of the room. Since this particular individual like to portray himself as very handy, we’re pretty sure he built this himself. Wow. :-)

Takes a great engineer (or lots of luck) to build something with so little that managed to not fall down under the printers weight…
Did you move it to your office so that you could use it :)

Smart to angle the legs like he did. Helps with racking.

No worries about stability. It had the support of surrounding clutter ;-)

I guess a true minimalist would appreciate that design…
(Amazing how one screw for each leg kept it together)

It’s also good that he left it unfinished so as not to take away from the natural beauty of the plywood.

I like the way that the one screw in each corner allows for the legs to rotate. I bet a good Marketing person could turn that into a “Unique Feature”.
