Im in the planning stages of building a desk and hutch. Youve seen
the desks you can buy that have a seperate hutch/bookcase that sits on
top of the desk. I want to build this as two seperate pieces. What
is the common way to connect them after theyre built? Its going to be
in a childs room and I dont want it to be wobbly or have any chance of
tipping over. The units Ive seen in stores have 2 "braces" that are
about maybe 8" long and an inch wide that are screwed on the back and
attatch to the top and bottom unit, but it still seems like if would
lean back if anyone lean against the top of the hutch, since nothing
is holding the front of the hutch to the desk. I may not be
explaining this very well, but does anyone have any ideas?
The desk will be 24" deep but the hutch is only 14" deep.
