    My main concern would be how large of a desk you were planning on making. Does it need support once you put a work surface on top. If you know how your going to use your desk (light duty versus heavy duty) then it will give you an idea of additional support it might need.

    I have done this several times. You can use any types of wood and patterns but the easiest is to get a hollow core door from any lumber yard. It can be stained and coated with polyurethane for durability.

    For a custom size use birch plywood. It has a smooth grain and can be stained or painted. Add a 2x2 trim along the bottom outside edges for depth
