Yes, the desk is really that short, because Im short legged!  The desk isnt finished, but wont take much more to fin. I dont have a shop to work in, so, I had to make do.  With my fibromyalgia getting worse, I needed something now, and at the right proper measurements  to my needs.

The keyboard, mouse, chair/chair height, wrist_rest also need to be proper placed. Ill be adding a acrylic or polycarbonate topper to the desk,  Ill add more pics as things progress forward...

    If the compartment on the right is for the tower, no harm in drilling some large holes for ventilation. Let me know if I can send you some hole saws or anything I can spare. Good luck.

    Dude that came out well. Great job

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    That is a Nice home made desk
     
    3/4 inch birch plywood ?
     
    Planning on a partial back, out of some 1/4 or 1/2 inch plywood to tie the legs & top together ?
     
    It is amazing what you can do with just a circular saw & a router ... nice (faster) to have some big tools (table & radial arm saws) but it is not needed.  I've made cabinets with just hand tools
     
    If needed, add a couple of inches between desk & side wall.  Also you could add some case fans if heat becomes an issue & wire them through a thermostat if you want to get fancy

    Enough chit chat provide BR for OP😼. I bought a desk just like it and cost me $75 on sale back in the 1990s😿.

    I would keep an eye on those temps, that space looks a little tight and might need more air flow.

    There is a 1x6x48 pc on pine on the upper backside. The inner side wall will get venting “drilled” holes. The desk will get nice and neat cabling for all the cables. I’ll be adding a a laminate sheet on the table top, and the rest of the wood will be getting,

    Edit: is birch plywood.

    What sort of monitor stand is that? Does it go through the desk top, or a clamp, or just leaning up against the wall? If you have a link for it, would be appreciated - might solve a few problems we have at home with some monitor stands as our desks are very narrow in depth due to necessity - home office space is a little tight with 2 desks. Thanks.

    No, those are not at all the same, I already have something like that, I was asking Knightsilver about that specific one, if it is a clamp or through the desk, even requesting a link - is your name Knightsilver? No. Were you able to answer any of those questions? No. Was you answer completely unhelpful and yet more of your continued passive-aggressive nonsense stalking my posts and adding little rolleyes icons? YES. You must really want that perma ban.

    Looks like you have some nice ideas Knight. The finished product will be nice. I am wondering what the cut-out is for in one of the drawings? {probably self explanatory, but I'm slooww}  Be sure to add some corner braces at the minimum.

    Put some rubber around the egdes😹😹

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
