Are you dead set on making because this is basically want you want already done. Different colors and sizes for same price

 

 Science studios recommended this  as affordable deskwear that doesn’t suck.  They also have L shape tables

There is no enemy. The foe on the battlefield is merely the manifestation of that which we must overcome. The doubt, and fear, and despair. Every battle is fought within. Conquer the battlefield that lies inside you, and the enemy disappears like the illusion it is.

Yes because I saw those and I like the length of the countertop and Ik it will last a long time and will be good if I wanted to use it for something else down the line

If you have access to a welder and some basic metalworking tools, I would use aluminum square tubing. Maybe 1.5" x 1.5" x .0625" wall, or something similar.

 

If metal's not your thing, you could build a frame from dimensional lumber, like this:

It's not the most stable design, but could be build with about 4 tools in a few evenings.

Screwdriver specs: Long, pointy. Turns things. Some kind of metal.

Matlab, MS Visual Studio, Davinci Resolve

 

And MS Paint
