A shelf 20” deep cries out for some heavy stuff on it so I would want to add support. I assume you are going to cover the edge plies? Perhaps you could use a 1-1.25” wide strip of solid wood along the front edge to add some stiffness. That might also allow you hide another strip on the bottom as well make it even more rigid, depending upon how high it is of course.

I do plan on adding a hardwood edge. Didn’t think about how that will help. Great idea an making a bit wider and hiding an additional strip on the bottom. Thank you!
