Photo 1. The birch plywood replacement desktop still works great. My primary software development computer runs 9 monitors. Using the same keyboard, mouse & monitors I connect to 3 other computers as needed. Computer dictation software finally works well for me.
Photo 2. My home office in 2001. The heavy CRT monitors eventually broke the termite-puke original desktop. The 2×4 under the right side is actually keeping the two right monitors from tumbling forward.
Photo 3. You can’t have too many clamps! This is a prior arrangement. I decided to move things around and have just two rows of monitors. Therefore all the monitor stands are just clamped to the computer desk. I admit that closest wooden-spacer-box, held to the desktop by two C-clamps and two bar clamps, is almost too ugly for my lack of taste. I made the paperback/CD bookshelves in the background, and the platform with the UPS on it, on the curved legs of the stand holding the computers.
Two other photos of the replacement desktop are on my website
