I'm currently designing an audio production desk/workstation. I've got most of the thing worked out, planning to use mostly 3/4" maple plywood for the desk itself.

The legs are where my question comes from. Is there any downside to using metal construction for the legs -- think either angle iron or 3/4" industrial looking piping?

I can't imagine there being issues, but I also know how sneaky some grounding issues can be, and if I'm going to potentially create a hum/grounding problem by using metal for the support structure, I'd come up with another option.

Note, this is for a home studio, and while I've invested in some equipment, I'm by no means a professions.

    If you aren't letting the legs touch the cables and everything is properly terminated then I see no possibility of grounding problems. – Timinycricket Apr 18 '18 at 2:04
