My Sis upgraded Her countertops to manufactured marble.I took one of
the old ones(L-shaped) to wall mount in a nook off the end of a
closet..It is sitting in place on the 2x2s but one side of the 33"
wide x 73" long "wing" is floating and not very sturdy,,so I need to
brace that edge with something that is unobtrusive to a user in an
office chair,,I do'nt think dropping a vertical leg is a good
option..large shelf bracket/s are the only good option I can think of
that allows for movement of a persons legs and gives support..
The 2x2s are hidden under the 30" high top but pose a problem for
the proposed brackets as they will have to be modified with a notch to
accomodate the 2x2..
The entire area of this conversion desk is 33" x 73" = 16.7 sq
ft,,then ad the small leg of the L-shape at 18" x 25" = 3.1 sq ft wich
totals 19.8 sq ft of desktop,,it is heavy on its' own and was tough to
set by Myself..I also took a 14" wide top that I cut down to fit the
51" opening between the exterior wall and the endwall of the
closet,,this adds 4.9 sq ft of shelf space and will be set just high
enough to allow for a monitor to slide back into the corner..It is'nt
a perfect setup but should suffice and if need be when gaming will
hold 2 PCs..
I need to get the final brace/s on before anything can destroy what
I've done so far,,looks are a concern but strength and function are
