I've never worked with wood before but would like to create my very first desk.
Please let me know if this is a good idea and how to improve upon it!
I plan to get a cheap desk from ikea: http://m.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/spr/29932181/
It states the maximum load capacity is 110lbs (50kg) but I'd like to increase it to like 170-200 lbs (80-90kg) so I can be sure my computer and monitors won't be stressing it. I might occasion put pressure from leaning on the table so I want to be extra sure it won't strain.
I'd love to build it on my own but I don't have any proper tools and getting a sheet of wood that is thick enough is difficult. If anyone could comment on the above idea or have recommendations, please let me know!
