Default Building a Table Case

Hi,

My friend and I are attempting to build a table case. The tabletop itself has dimensions of 60cm x 100cm x 20cm. The top will be covered with glass and I'm currently undecided on whether to go with steel or aluminium or maybe a mix of both. Also, how thick should the bottom and the sides of the case be?

Will post pictures of SolidWorks designs when I'm finished making them.

Wall thickness depends on material selection, including the top (glass). It will be quite heavy, overall.

Show us the progress, always interesting to see these endeavours.

always wanted to do this, but always chicken out due to the fact I would want to be changing designs all the time.
Can't wait to see some pics.

Cross Desk ? The last desk you?ll ever buy.
End Story....
Inspired by a "case mod" desk enclosure of a few years ago: Project : L3p D3sk

I'd be all over the Cross Desk if it wasn't $2k+shipping+extras

Project : L3p D3sk is probably one of my favorite mods ever
If I was ever to attempt this, that is probably the design I would go for.
Cross desk is awesome...but I could never find the time to complete that
or afford it
