I brought the plane to the camera not the camera to the plane. That's my coffee table, the bench is still beat up!
I now am the proud owner of smaller elbows! Slippery ones at that!
Why would I want to shoot miters, you can't eat them, and they're not offensive, and they're always, just around the corner!
I don't see how this would help since they would still interfere with the filing cabinet...?
Not really. Aprons are featured in designs because they not only prevent racking but they add visual weight to a piece. I think it would look goofy with just legs and a top...but that's me.
These are issues that are supposed to be worked out in the design phase...not during the build. The end user should have told you his plans for this desk and the filing cabinet should have been accounted for from the beginning...i.e. make it taller.
gee-dub's idea would work but only if a half inch or so of extra space will solve the problem, and if they don't intend to store the filing cabinet flush against the inside of the legs.
