Home office table
I'll be renovating my home office this year and since I just got into woodworking I'd like to make myself a nice table with storage.
I'm a beginner so I don't really know if this design would hold up and I'd be happy if you'd give your honest opinions and advice.
Probably I'll make it out of European oak or ash, the tabletop will be laminated and 3cm thick (1.2 inches). The issue is that my room has a radiator mounted on the wall that dictates table's height and limits adding braces on that part (I'll include a sketch of the office that has all of that). Another issue is that the room has some weird angles that will be a challenge to cut.
The cabinet's design isn't finished yet, I'm still deciding which way to go, either drawers or cabinets with shelves. Also there is no joinery at this moment, just a basic design sketch.
How would you attach the legs to the table?
Do I need to add braces on the bottom of the tabletop to prevent warping and add structure?
How would you connect the left part to the middle part (the joint that has the weird angle)? I was thinking a lap joint and a wide table leg right beneath it or a zipbolt connector.
Issues i'm facing:
I'd like to retain the left corner open so that you can slide with an office chair without hitting the leg. Would the leg design offer enough support?
In this design the table and the cabinet are separate parts. Another option it to make the cabinet base extend under the table and that would be the support on that end. The top would then be connected.
