In reply to Anchoring a heavy computer desk. by Heather on August 15th, 2000 12:11 AM [Go to top of thread]

I know how you feel. I design offices and install office furniture and I have to say that the wonderful catalog pictures and "cheap" prices that customers often show me are very enticing. Adding casters to an already unsteady station will only add additional instability, especially with a cat in the picture. Henry's idea of additional bracing is the best. The manufacturer is suggesting support by anchoring rather than bracing. Odds are the material is very thin and will not lend itself to much nailing or screwing. If you can't anchor to the wall or brace it with existing components you only have a few options:
1) Sell it.
2) Use it for a newspaper stand (only one paper).
3) Invent or buy a functional base. In college we used concrete blocks.
I know I'm not much help but there is only so much you can do with the materials that you have in this workstation. Good Luck,
