I picked up a Vika table top and some legs to use as a desk. Problem is, the desk is much too deep for the space I have for it. It's dimensions are
Length: 59 "
Width: 29 1/2 "
I want to put it on a table saw and cut it into two pieces, one 20'' deep and one 9.5'' deep (ignore wood lost due to cutting, eh?). Then I would use some little furniture legs I bought to make a narrower desk with two levels. Then I would nail in some backing to cover the raw edges and make it look nice and finished.
My biggest worry is that this Vika table is hollow, or as I've seen it described elsewhere, honeycombed. The corners where the legs attach are solid but the rest of it is filled with cardboard. Knowing this, my plan is to glue some scrap one bys in there for the legs to attach to, as well as to nail the backing to. Does anyone see any problems with this plan?
I'm also considering just returning the damned hollow thing and getting something solid. Furniture should be solid...
