The problem with making that from solid is movement. The sides will expand/contract – only a very small amount, but that could lead to problems on the horizontal surfaces. Veneered sheet goods have only a 0.6mm or thereabout veneer, so easy to sand thru and presenting problems at the corners.
If you make your own veneers you will get around the problems presented by a thin veneer. MDF is a good substrate, you would just have to make sure you do both sides to balance it.
