Just completed this desk for my adult son. Based on student desk plans from Kreg I made a few changes.
Added the feature at the bottom to give a better look. They are actually removable risers because he wanted it taller than standard and I wanted him to be able to change it in the future if he had a different need. I laminated 2 sheets of 3/4 plywood for the top, added a drawer, wide keyboard tray, and made the shelves adjustable. He also wanted the back open to get good ventilation for the computer, so I face framed front and back for strength.
Wood: 3/4 Purebond birch plywood, poplar hardwood for framing.
Tools: Table saw, circular saw, kreg jig, drill, sander, band saw
I included the picture of the finishing stain and topcoat FYI because it turned out looking really nice.
