I have built a very simple desk out of laminated panels; two legs connected with a back board held by L brackets.
Problem is it is still quite wobbly horizontally and I was hoping the back board would prevent it and it does, but not as much as I would like.
The top is not yet connected because I don't want to move further without a proper way to fix the wobble.
The connections have no play and they are flushed together, so I ruled out the possibility of the back board being kind of loose at the L connections which means I will have to add more support.
Problem is I can't see which is the ideal way to fix this while occupying the least amount of space.
I assume that just mounting the top will not prevent the wobble because this wobble is horizontal and the top will only prevent the legs from skewing, which is not related to the horizontal wobble.
So far I have thought about adding corner brackets between the legs and the top
But I also thought the back board would be enough, so I might be wrong here and would like some help before moving on. Does anyone know how can I fix this horizontal wobble while occupying the least amount of space? Do take into account that there has to be space left at the front for the legs to come in while sitting, this is not a standing desk.
