My cousin’s wife has MS and they needed a new computer desk because her wheel chair was destroying the old desk. The goal was to make it easier to get her chair under it without hitting the legs. I came up with this simple design. I normally would not take on a project this large, but it was for family. Main difficulties with this desk was getting all the clearances correct. It looks standard, but it is all custom to her needed height and widths based on how she sits in her chair.

Your attention to detail to fit her need is compassionate woodworking. The desk looks great.

Turned out real nice.
I like the over all appearance but, in my opinion, it could use a cable hiding skirt near the back side.

I wonder when people started wanting/needing computer desks.

It is heartwarming to know that you would go the extra mile for a loved one. It seems that the main concern is having this storage desk customized to suit hers and the wheelchair’s dimensions. It definitely looks detailed and sturdy to last much longer than her previous desk.
