Bought a desktop computer for the family and mainly for the kids to use. Beings that is was for the kids we wanted to be able to have it where we could keep tabs on them and help with their computer skills. The biggest problem was that we didnt have a lot of space for a bigger computer desk. So I gathered up some scrap wood and designed this desk. It is small and compact. At only 40 inches wide it holds the desktop and everything that goes with it. The printer and paper too. It tucks away nicely behind the couch.
