See this is why I asked ... some good ideas I had problems thinking about ...
Latest Model, I took out the 1 side of cubbies and made the drawers big enough to hold 8.5 wide paper.
The red is the width of the monitor, which is about 26" to be safe.monitor is really around 25 1/2" heavy
Not really constrained in size per say, but I dont want a 10' wide desk to fit tons of options haha. RIght now I am at 4'8 which is what the design is on the website, I would say 5'6" or so might be the biggest I would want to go, not sure though. The office it is going in is 9' x 12'8 .. so not the biggest room. The one thing that may help though is I want it to run the width of the room so I will have plenty of room on each side.
I did adjust in my 2nd revision to make there more room to fit the monitor in between the organizers instead of in the front.
The drawers not all the same size does look funny after you mention it. I am thinking of making the apron drawers 9" to match the organizer.
As far as not attaching the organizers ... could I do the "cork" like sticky bottom and then maybe a 1/4 - 1/2" overhang on the back panel of the organizer to always keep it aligned on the back?
when you say shallow notch ... you mean like route out the side of the organizers about 1/8 deep or so and they could just slide in? I do like the idea of magnets though ... I think that might be a decently easy idea to pull off.
LOL!!! as much fun as that movie scene could be ... the Lady would have to be mighty drunk and then I am sure we would brake the computer with the desktop clearing method they always do, unless I have some damn impressively strong magnets haha
