Joost's pics on this page are Christian O's, and the pics in his post on the previous page are mine.
With mine - the mdf top is 2.5 metres long, you can buy lengths about 2600 here (i think, you can pretty much get any length you want).....
Just looking at your plans, maybe put a rectangular frame (made out of pine 2in by 4in) at the bases of your shelve units. On top of this havea solid shelf. It may not look quite as good, but it will probably provide a support for your table, it'll help brace your shelf sections and this should help brace the whole unit. Up to you though, it should be more than strong enough if you have backing boards on it.
Hey, cheers for the heads up. Just looked at it again and it's actually D@ve's set up i think.
Hmmmm maybe it just looks extra long in the picture then.
Regarding my table, it's all going to be made of 18mm MDF. The back board is also going to be made of 18mm mdf, and the whole lot is going to be Glued and Screwed. Should be sturdy as a house! (hopefully lol, touch wood)
Cheers for the idea though, if it isn't sturdy enough when it's finished i'll be doing that
