I wouldn’t use either wood for a desk top – unless it’s mostly for show. Both of your choices are pretty soft and will probably get dinged up pretty quickly. If your heart is set on those, however, give the top 3-4 coats of polyurethane finish to give it more durability.

Someone mentioned getting it into the house, and that’s always important. You probably need to make the desk in modules, make the top in one large piece, then attach it to the modules when you get everything in the room.
