Are you going to wrap it in plywood? I used 1/4 birch on mine and it really helped keep things together.

I was planning to leave the back open, but encase the remaining 3 sides in something like pine for aesthetics. Haven't decided what will look sleek & modern enough yet!

The L in the leg is screwed & bracketed together using 4 90 degree brackets on each leg.
