[Lowe's] Q Solutions Acacia Straight Cut Solid Surface Kitchen Countertop - 74" x 40" x 1"

This seems looks like a good deal and wider at 40" vs. 25" like many tables. Reg price is $229.

In stock at many stores. $82.98 at South Etobicoke, 24 in stock.

Wondering if too wide as a computer desk. Now to find a base or build one.

Solid wood countertop. Different clearance prices at different locations, Maple location has it for $46.

Definitely a bit wide for a desk, but manageable..

Common base for DIY desks is a pair of Alex drawers from ikea.

This would make a nice computer desk.

Just buy some legs!

Those Alex drawers look good - low in stock at a few stores.

There would be 17" of overhang at the back, if you wanted the drawers to be flush with the front. Maybe 2 legs in the back would help support and also reduce any sag if they were offset towards the middle.

Yeah with a 72" x 40" x 1" top, you'd probably need a cross support anyways toward the back.

Any reason i couldn’t/wouldn’t cut these and make shelves off these?

They couldn’t find them at Etobicoke South.

The herringbone ones are poorly made.

I wouldn’t want to rip these down, more like a door instead a piece of dimensioned lumber.

I have one that I've been using as a desk for the last 5 months. Wouldn't recommend. The wood is very soft.

Ah perfect. I was about to use it to make a desk until I saw this comment. Thank you for your input sir.
