Woodware Design's version is a low-stress roll-top computer desk similar to ones used in the 1930's to include a large manual typewriter (seen in several motion pictures of the period). The keyboard and mouse are mounted on a pullout tray so that the desk can be narrow enough to be carried through most residential room doors. The upper space houses the monitor but has room for other pieces of electronics or a set of pigeon holes. A tambour of a readily available type and size is used so that it need not be modified. The base has two simple cabinets with pullout shelves for the computer and small printer.
