Topic tags/keywords: furniture design design desk

So, in the pursuit of designing my first piece of furniture from scratch I have a question for all you LJ’s out there:

Would you use corner blocks in a desk this size? Why or Why not? Also any recommendation as to placement?

Desk size:

I would use corner blocks in any desk with this type of leg. It makes for a stronger corner.

Tom & Scott,

You said “with this type of leg”; is there a leg design that you would not use it with?

If I had modesty panel in the front or a lower brace or panel between the legs on the sides. I still would probably use corner blocks just because I do not think you can over build a piece. People have tendency to drag a piece of furniture than pick them up.

The dragging of the furniture is my worry. Thanks for the reply Tom….
