Drawers up front for storage, and to hide laptop. Top middle will pull out to allow access to laptop. I’ll be doing cable management to make sure it’s reliable.
Bottom shelf to place water chiller, collect dust, and random nick-nacks I’ll never use.
I’m currently planning to create the entire lattice network with pocket holes, but I’m wondering if I may need to create a slot in the 4x4 and glue them for rigidity. I prefer plywood lattice over 2x4 because they’re lighter and less bulky. I’m also tempted to create a laminated leg out of plywood…
I created a new revision with a torsion box on top. I also decided to go with laminated plywood legs because I’ve always wanted to try it. I also planning on strapping the back with a 1/4 sheet of plywood. This should provide good racking resistance.
For the electronics, I’ve decided to setup a raspberry pi with a touch screen. I’ll probably have it mounted out in front of everything.
