I used a couple of "seconds" from a local oak cabinet manufacturer.  They 
were base pieces for  bathroom vanities.  One was a drawer stack, the other had 
two doors on it.  They were a little high so I cut the base off each one to 
drop it about three or four inches.  I then nailed two 3/4 inch plywood pieces 
together (there is a big gap between the two and I wanted no sag) to make a 1 
1/2 inch desk top which I covered with Formica.  After trimming the Formica, I 
then put 1 x 2 oak for trim. Pretty cheap to do and it looks sharp.

It is incredibly strong.  Along with two complete stations and all kinds of 
other stuff stacked in three tiers, I can stand on the top and there is no sag.

If you need plywood, let me know.  I have twelve sheets laying around I 
bought to get ready for Hurricane Charley....:-)
