Suggestion for the Top

    I think with the direction you are going, the stand-up desk will look like a table with a writing desk on top. I recently did a project comparable to this. I will try to explain as best I can. I started with the portion that has the writing surface first. I made that almost the same as you are. I made this portion completely stand alone with the top of the legs behind the aprons. the aprons are dovetailed and without the writing surface looks like the top of a cabinet without the countertop. The aprons I made are 4 1/2'' in the front and 7 1/2'' in the back. All 4 legs go up behind the apron 1 3/4'' on top of the legs is a frame just like the frame between drawers on a chest of drawers. the writing surface opens with a box underneath just like yours. this box has a smaller removable box for pencils. it has a portion for writing paper. A portion for pamphlets, a portion for business cards, and a few other for a stuff that I cannot recall. But you get the picture. these portions are short enough where your visitor's book, or in my case a binder fits on top of the partitions and can still close the top. for the flat part next to it, I made what we can call a table with shelves underneath, but only had two legs. It shared the other two legs with the writing desk. There was the top and 3 shelves under it. shelves are evenly spaced. For the top shelf, I made a box with two small drawers in it. This box was 2'' smaller than the space all the way around. It looks really cool. The other shelves under it are open space. The top of this portion had the bottom edge of it's top aligned with the bottom of the box for the writing portion. This thing looks absolutely fantastic!!!

    A picture would help.

    Sorry Rick, it was for a local church here in Korea. Didn’t take pics.
