The drop front work surface of this desk is TOO heavy not to have any additional support. I read several reviews before purchasing. We used the hinges enclosed by the mfg AND installed a piano hinge. I still felt that the worksurface would not withstand much weight or pressure. But, before I could decide how to handle it, I was moving the assembled piece (with furniture movers underneath the legs) and the door came open on its own causing the screws in the mfg supplied hinges to be pulled out of the wood, mollies and all.!! So, in my opinion this is a very bad design. When I called Overstock, I was instructed to disassemble & return the item. I don't have the boxes (since all parts were there we put them out for the trash) and our local UPS store said it would cost me approx $100 to buy right size boxes. Last time buying large furniture items online, just too much hassle unless they have a gold glove delivery option allowing for assembly, delivery & pick up if not satisfactory !!! In my opinion this desk could actually be dangerous.
