A couple weeks back I posted on Google+: “If this is good enough for +Kevin Michaluk then I can definitely see using this at work” (link to post here).
I figured instead of waiting around for my employer to kick in and buy me a new standing desk I would go ahead and do my own version. Modular furniture is meant to be moved around, right?
A few articles/reviews for those interested:
- The article by Kevin Michaluk linked in my G+ post. “Standing Desks – Why I Use One; Why You Should Too”
- “Standing at Work” from Mark’s Daily Apple
- From Mashable, “Are You Sitting Down? Why a Stand-Up Desk Might Save Your Life“
- “IKEA stand up desk: two months later” from Se Habla Code LosTechies (nice blog name btw).
Updates as I move forward with this.

Nice, I think that’s the only usage I could think for yellow pages hehe. I’ve seen some fancy standing desks in the market but they’re so expensive : (
Ah, you saw the yellow pages. :)
Honestly, if this works as well as I think it does I would definitely invest. We spend more time at our desks working (well, some of us) than we do in a bed sleeping. And we all know how important it is to invest in a good comfortable bed.
First I’ll fine tune the heights here and should probably get a good soft mat to stand on, something like this looks good.
Update with a link to MDA.
