I'm trying to figure out what the depth of the ends of an "L" shaped workcenter would be if the listed dimensions of the product are 66 1/4" Depth x 99" Width. To make it easier to know what I'm talking about, the product is located at http://www.officedepot.com and if you search for product # 685001, you'll see O'Sullivan Ellington "L" Workcenter.

I'm assuming that the 66 1/4" is the deepest center part, but what I'm trying to figure out is if I add pieces to either side of it, whether they will stick out.

Does that make sense?

Thanks to anyone who attempts to figure this out for me.

I agree with you - it's most confusing. In fact it is impossible to establish the depth of each leg from the data they give you. I suggest you try to make contact with a human being at Office Depot (but don't ask me how!)

AH HA! By prodigious use of Google, I found a company selling that product that listed the side dimensions. It's 49 1/2".
