Buying Electric Desk Frame and want a 40" deep table.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I'm looking at something very specific for what I want. I like my monitor farther from me than what an average desk can supply. So I am looking at this desk frame, it is not available ATM but that is why I am here with this question in the first place. Here is the link: https://drop.com/buy/drop-lift-2-sit-to-stand-desk#overview


The width of the stand can reach as far as 73.6" and the supplied tabletop is 48" or 60" x 27.5" x 0.75". I want/will make a tabletop of 72" x 40" x 1". I am just afraid that with the extra 12.5" (45%) depth from 27.5" to 40" that the table will lean backwards when weight is added to the rear. A ~14lb arm mount, ~28lb monitor, ~50lb computer, and other accessories will be placed mostly towards the rear of the tabletop. I want to figure out if the table will support this from standard wood that you can find from Home Depot, etc.

I would look into affixing any top to the base to extend, not sure of the materials but adhesive might work, as would screws, or even clamps as a less permanent solution.
