Needed a new larger desk.  Since I'm a woodworker, I was able to design and build a size for my application. You can too if a pattern is given to you maybe friendly woodworker down the street?  Just used 2  large angle L brackets screwed onto 2 inch angle bracket that is fastened to the two wall ends. I even faboracated a Small drawer underneath for pencils and stuff.  Done all in Maple, as that is our PC design.

Denny,
What a great idea to mount a table top there.  I've been using a small folding TV table there, but it's always too crowded.
I'd need a more detailed description on how to attach one to the wall (two wall ends?).  I'm afraid to screw anything into the exterior wall.

Bruce...  Wherever there is a corner, there will be some wood brace to screw into... You can test the waters with a 1/16" drill just to be sure.  So I have a screw in each end of the angled brace/mounting bracket. The "L" bracket is then screwed to the angle bracket, the table bottom only... Bottom of "L" bracket just rest against the wall for support.
