I want to make a desk suspended from the wall like this but don't like the look of the galvanized pipe at that 45 degree angle.
Can I get support using 90 angles and still have it suspended? It will be about 30-40" wide, maybe 14-18" deep and support a mouse and keyboard plus weight of my arms.
Mine will not be in the corner.
like this, you need to have enough load strength for the loads you will put on the desk. More is always better.
heavy duty shelf brackets
Oh okay, that's what I thought. I want to use galvanized pipe, I just don't want that 45 and am hoping I can do something 90 degree angles just doesn't look too sturdy.
I could put a header across the back wall to support the back no problem.
I remember these brackets that had this little groove in the middle. They're supposed to be 3 times as strong as the regular ones. You could try to look for these.
Well, I would think you would be ok using a different angle, but you do need a triangle shape for it to be really strong. If you can get 30 degree fittings, those should be fine if you just want a flatter angle.
Alternatively, the angle doesn't have to go all the way to the end of the desk, about 2/3rds is fine.
already stated (but worth repeating) - do not, under no circumstances, attempt to build a desk with those. No. If amyone makes a variation of these worth an actual fuck?, they do so in secret.
tbf - 'the weight of your arms+keyboard+mouse' ≠ the weight of you leaning on it, and trying to bend the things in your hands be way over 40kg also. But, they bend of their own accord anyway - do not attempt using these, not for a desk, nope. You really want a 90 angle desk support, get a welder to knock you something up, an off-the-shelf 90 angle will end in tears, pain and spilled coffee.
or something like this the desk would be as strong as the piece of material you use for the top
Or would this make a difference?
I want to use pipes for an industrial look.
$50-75 for the pipe and fittings most likely. I'm not sure how much those pipes may flex set up like that.
I think my picture not being drawn to scale make it look overkill. Planning to use 2" thick top about 18" deep and 3/4" pipe.
Nope. Calculate the forces on that bracket when you put 100 pounds on the edge of that table. It will pull wood screws right out of studs.
Sorry, but if you want to support any decent load, you will need a longer base (vertical distance along wall) for a bracket to support the load. Pipes or heavy welded steel brackets can eliminate the diagonals. But they are going to have to be long enough to distribute the load on the table.
Spent $70 on pipe, just did a dry fit and you can't even see them underneath. I should have just went with this system and kept them hidden or finish grade. >>933712
On well, at least they turned out to be sturdy enough, will post pictures when done.
a set of these things will let you fold the table down when not in use so you have free space for parties or whatever. they can hold lots of weight; i used them for a workbench.
I plan to do something similar, and I'm thinking of cutting the drywall behind the desk to support it on the studs directly. Maybe. That, or have a piece of plywood parallel to the wall as well for bracing.
solid wood or metal table top
length wise hinge strip secured to wall via drywall screws and longer ones into the studs.
Get pipping in L shape on both sides if heavy ass computer is on it and attach to wall with U brackets.
Your desk can support your ass if you sleep on it AND can be folded away when not needed.
I botched the finish job but it will work, upset i can't see much of the grain, picked out paint grade patched pine board i was excited about. I wanted something antique looking. Tried skipping a step and using the combination clear coat and stain from Minwax, wouldn't recommend it.
Going to wall mount the monitor and hide all the wires in the wall, should look good.
Thanks for the advice.
