Greetings! This is my first build, and I'm looking for advice. I want to build a desk for a corner space in my little apartment, and nothing commercial fits the bill. Plus, I like building my own solutions.

This is a 1:12 scale model with the actual dimensions to be 6' tall and 3' on the sides with the shelves. The small triangle is for the PC tower. I'm thinking of mounting the monitors along the uprights above the desk top.

I can't decide if I want a top shelf or leave it open. If I did put in a shelf would it need additional support? I'd likely just put pictures and nick knacks on the shelf.

For the desk top I'm thinking 3/4" sanded plywood. That way I can dec it as I see fit. I thought about glass, but I have a temper :).

I'd love to hear if I've overlooked anything or if there are suggestions for added functionality.
