You can remove them from something that has drawers or buy them from somewhere that sells a good selection of hardware. I am pretty sure Home Depot or Lowe's has some but not sure what kind of selection would be available.

Those look kind of weak though.

These look more like it. If you don't have drawers on the sides, like me, then you would need extra brackets to screw to the bottom of the desks top.

Like that would def work for my desk. Oh wow they have physical locations around So Cal. Hope that helps.

I'm just offsetting the shelves by 6 inches to allow fingerspace for playing, and giving a bit more than a foot height to allow for tweaking knobs.

A little expensive but many options are available. http://www.argosyconsole.com/

Of the desk? Maybe after I add the shelf. Anonymity is cool though. :mrgreen:
