I would like to make some furniture. It'll hold my computer, some books and still need to be strong enough to hold the weight of me leaning on it etc.
How to I calculate what thickness of wood is needed and how regularly supports are needed?
Here is a sketch of the piece I'd like to make:
I am thinking of using Pine, but am not fixed on that (any suggestions?).
Looking at a television stand I have, it seems that 60cm is a reasonable gap for the top, however the bottom will have to support all of the weight for the unit.
I hope this covers the basic information that was missing, feel free to ask more though! Any advise is welcome.
