Bottom Trough

After the supports and cleats were attached, I added an L-shaped bottom trough to strengthen the whole assembly. (It's also a nice way to store all the cords coming out of the computer.)

cut bottom. The trough consists of a bottom (G) cut 47/ir," wide and the same length as the top panel (47see Fig. 5. To join it to the back panel (B), cut a groove to accept the tongue already cut on the bottom edge of the back panel (B), see Cross Section in Fig. 5.

mount bottom. Now glue the trough bottom (G) onto the tongue on the back panel (B). Also, screw it to the support blocks, see Fig. 5. (While you're at it, drill two shank holes IVs from the end of the trough bottom so later it can be screwed to mounting blocks on the legs.)

trough lip. Finally, to keep all the wires in place, I cut a 3"-wide trough lip (H) and glued it to the front edge of the trough bottom, see Fig. 5.
