Making up a art desk for a christmas present which is an angled top about
26" deep. I've glued up stock to make feet which will run parallel to the
sides which are like you see on traditional work benches. What is the
proper "dimension" of those feet? Currently I am about 4-5" shorter in
length and 1.5" thick. Plan to connect to the art desk with a plate across
the bottom at an interior baffle in the desk, then rabit the legs to the
plate, run those to a mortise in the feet.
