Well, that´s probably right smile.gif but that would make the desk hella stable, and the curves made the desk a little less rectangular smile.gif

the base would be stable but I am not so sure about the single leg on either side especially when there is weight added to the top I think that it would just start to wobble a bit even more so when extended to full height

Poplar is harder than pine but is still kind of soft so it's easy to work with. Is MDF hard to route? I've never really worked with MDF before. Pine might be okay for those parts though, I wouldn't think those areas would get too beat up.

MDF is really easy to route its just a bit soft and fluffy on edges, I guess I can test them both out!

I'll get V5 legs up in a mo!

This is the most complex piece that will have to be routed, it will be done with a CAD controlled router so it shouldn't be a problem



Here you can see what I mean about V3 being top heavy, also you can see all of the steel substructure with this style of legs, imagine how unstable the legs will be when extended to 1.2m



V4 vs V5 legs, V5 on the right, much easier to construct, simple boxy look, the blue line is a section of 6mm frosted acrylic with an RGB LED strip behind it which runs down both legs. This can be made any color, it can fade between colors, it can flash different colors or it can simply be off wink.gif

ahhh CNC's are awesome. but for $70 you can get your own hand router and then the possibilities are endless. you will find yourself wanting more from the robot that it simply can't do once you reach that dusty part in the back of your head where the ideas are. smile.gif building my own desk now too for future compatibility of a computer, but not building it in at this point

We have both and the CNC can do really good 3D, it takes a long time but it can do a hemisphere, a friend of mine used it to create the shell for an electric guitar
