Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
This is my own design and it is 33” wide 21” deep and 52” tall (30” to the top of stand).
I bought the Lonnie Bird tambour making router bit set. The tambour slats are 1/2” thick and don’t require canvas or wires, it is made like a round tenon and socket. The minnimun radius is 3”.
I think my wife will use with her laptop computer and a printer on the bottom shelf. The lower drawer has a top that is flash with the drawer top to place the computer and has storage underneath.
Here is a link of the set I bought. http://www.toolstoday.com/p-5916-tambour-doorappliance-garage-router-bit-set-by-lonnie-bird.aspx
I got mine on ebay new for $150 including shiping.It is very easy to make if you have a nice router table. (I used the Grizzly model wich is nice and was only $119 as a presidents special.)

First and foremost, amazing piece of work! I am in the process of building my first desk; I used Cherry and was wondering how you happened to finish your project.
