The pressboard that most of the less expensive computer "desks/cabinets" use
will not even hold a monitor on a shelf without warping...I use a computer
desk for some of my ham stuff and the larger lowband transceivers can't go
in the middle of the unsupported top shelf without creating a tendency for
it to bow downward.

If you have real wood...go for it!
