I actually also don't have a 1/4 straight bit (I don't think...). 😃

I did find a tip btw that doesn't need a stopped dado. Using table saw, cut the dado all the way across but making sure it lines up to where the tails cover the edge of the drawer front! Sometimes will make your drawer shallower than you need but sometimes may work good.

Construction finished. A little bit of tweaking still required on my moulding mitres (#&!*). Sanded right now to 180...going to raise the grain and knock it down with 220.

Thanks to feedback here regarding one side having doors and the other drawers would not look right decided to have door fronts on both and put drawers behind one side (other side is for the computer).

First time using my pc dt jig...a little sloppy. Glued the dt joints which I'm not sure is right but needed to to clean up the slack. 😨

Onto finishing......

Is that just one solid board(glued together, but basically 1 board) for the top?

I've never built a desk like this, but I would think you would have wanted to put some kind of apron underneath there to help support it. I'm not sure if you could incorporate that into the design easily at this point in the build, but it might be worth removing the top, seeing if you can get it flat, and adding some sort of substructure to support the span between the two bases.
