After dry fitting the new sides and top I glued them both in place. Then I tacked the remade cubby holes on the bottom at each side. I also needed a new back piece. Since I like stained wood I used some beadboard I had left over from another project. The front drop down has to be remade because with the new extended top it needs to be taller.  I also have to make the extra section to close the new top section which will fold forward when the desk is open to be used as a wrist wrest when typing. The photo below is a virtual of how it will look when I get those two pieces made.
