I have made one of these for each of my three boys. The panels are made of three 1×6 boards edge joined with biscuits. Front/back to side joints are simple rabbet joints reinforced with screws driven from the sides that were later hidden by the legs. Safety hinges, of course, to protect the little fingers.
The first one (first picture) was finished with a natural stain and 3 coats of brush-on poly. The next two were finished with two coats of stain-Dark Walnut then Ebony. I eventually came to prefer the look of wipe-on poly.
