Title: Cabinet Ergonomy
Post by: defmaka on February 12, 2020, 03:26:34 am
I've started to project my first cabinet, using as reference different cabinets plan. I'm working towards an hybrid vewlix cabinet based on a 27" lcd monitor.
In my last project iteration , control panels heights near 80cm ( 31" 1/2 inches more or less) , granting 72 cm - 28" 1/3 of clearance for my legs ( this is similar to my desktop, with 69 cm - 27" clearance).
I'm a bit concerned about control panel height: is it too much?
I can solve it probably with a stool, but i'd love to hear your opinions.
Here's some images of the project as attachment

To be honest, itís kind of odd seeing a Viewlix stretched out like that. Iíve never thought of them as anything other than sit-down cabs.

Yeah, I've reworked on a new shorter iteration because probably this tends to be neither good for standing nor for sitting. Still working on it though, I'll post it later on.

If we were to ask Jenn, I guessing she would be all like... "From a design standpoint including height of the C/P it has a nice look, the back of it serves no real purpose however, and kinda has the feel like it fell off the truck, and would be better served as strait as to sit up against a wall, simplify construction and give more options for sideart."

I like a 5 degree angle on my CPs.

It's a great project, I think. Here is a great list of awesome wood router I've found recently ( url: https://www.woodroutersreviews.com/ ), and I simply wonder about the key difference between Bosch 1617EVS and model Festool 574692. I mean, two of them have basic options, but did you use any of them? Do you have any advice how to choose the best one?
