After drawing some thinking sketches for a while, I decided to create a Solidworks model to help me visualize more clearly what I had imagined.
It is becoming extremely clear to me that this project isn't just going to be about form. Function is also going to be a major component to this design. Here is a rough concept of the table top. Tomorrow, I'll need to figure out a stable structure for the legs -- It must not wobble.
Also. I think I must collect images of people's desktops to see how people really work these days.
