Find a very large furniture store in your area that carries at least middle price range furniture. Look at desks and tables that are approx. 30" X 5 feet. Check them all out with particular attention to the legs. That should give you a really good idea of leg dimensions to total size of your desk/table.
Probably also find a reasonably high end furniture store and do the same thing. Most furniture designers learned ages ago what proportions look good.
