and can't find anywhere that has what I want.
The legs must be planks, not just sticks.. eg:
A similar design to the picture above would be best.
Can anyone suggest a carpenter or shop in which I can purchase what I want, I have tried Ikea, office works and other stores like that.
Help is very much appreciated ^_^
Since im not over there I would just look for a carpenter / cabinet maker as desk construction is similar to cabinets. Would be pricey I would guess.
If I were u draw out what you want. And just build it. Just remember measure twice cut once...

). It was supported by a rail we put into the wall all around the perimeter of the desk, two 2-drawer filing cabinets at the ends and a set of drawers in the middle. It's basically two "workstations" next to one another. When we ordered it, we had them put two 3 inch diameter holes in the surface to run cables through (monitor, mouse, kb, etc.). Also added some shelves above it (like a hutch) and some power outlets. We've had it for ten years now and it's been fantastic.
Wish u had pics id like to see this...
Im in the US. I do pc repair in the area so after we moved to a place with 2 spare bedrooms. Im turning one into an actual office so the g/f rodent have to clean up my pile system.
I ended up buying several 2"x3"x8 ' building a frame that is 8' long and 26" deep. On each end I have a 22"x48 " coming off the main structure to form a U shaped desk. On top of the frame I put 3/4" Birch cabinet grade plywood. At the moment im looking for sheets of tempered glass to put on top of the plywood to protect it after I stain and seal it.
After I get that im going to put sliding cabinet dora under the 2 sections coming off the main structure to hide all my parts/machines. And all my reloading equipment on the opposite side. Nothing like guns, ammo, and computers. : )
I drilled whole under the desk support braces and im running air line hoses from my air compressor so I can blow the dust out of the computers w /o haveing cables and hose all over the floor.
You guys are spending $50 on the whole desk. I spent $45 on the 4'x8' birch plywood alone.
