Granson's desk

I am making a desk for my 8 year old Grandson, John A Wagle 5th. I am using 3/4 C3 red oak plywood. I have I Semble shelf blocks purchased from Rockler to use in mounting two shelves on each side, I also purchased slides for a keybord shelf and casters to be able to move it easily. The desk is 56" X 27" and the side shelves are 27" x 14". The keyboard shelf will be 20" x 14". I will probably paint it in a white high gloss enamel. I am covering the 3/4" faces with a 3/8" x 3/4" pine with rounded edges to give it a more finished look
