The perfect shaped table/desk that doesnt wobble with lcd monitor

  1. Sep 11, 2009 #1
    What would you say is the most stable shape of desk.

    i have some problems with my desk wobbling. I want to get my computer monitor and desk to be as stable as possible.


    If you look closely at the bottom edges of this desk there is 4 huge round thumb tac things.

    When you assemble a computer desk often they have four huge thumb tacs to put on each corner of the bottom of the desk.

    Should you only use these on wood floors.

    If it is on carpet is it unnecessary to put these huge thumb tac things on the bottom?

    They only really help to keep the desk from scratching the floor when you move it. Otherwise, if you have an uneven floor and aren't into doing things like stuffing cardboard under the uneven side, or fixing the floor, you should look for something with feet that adjust (i.e., have screws on them that attach to the furniture) so you can account for the uneven floor.
