I wanted to have my desk not too thick so I had opted for a 2” frame + 3/4” thick desk top (the reference blogs had various thickness down to a 2x2 frame). The width is about 68” and will be 16” deep.
However, now that I am looking at it in progress, I’m worried that it will not support the weight or be sturdy enough. And I originally though I bought 2x2 furring strips for the frame but it was only 1 3/8” so it’s not that thick.
My desk will be supported by two walls with studs and we are only using the desk sporadically when we need to take a conference call in that room (we’ll just have our laptops on it and maybe the weight of us typing on it).
Do I need to redo the frame? What’s the minimum thickness of the desk frame if I’m trying for a thinner look?
