I used oak plywood with a 3 inch band aroundit. I cut the edge band on the top side. It tapers from 2 inches back to the front edge where it is 3/8 inches thick. I use this for a computer desk. I finished it with polyurethane brush on varnish. I an getting some surface scratching from the legs on the back of the keyboard. I have been using this for 8 years now. I never write on a wood surface so I couldn’t tell you about how that part will hold up.
