Sitting all day was becoming a real pain: bad posture, occasional back pain (when I stayed too focused too long), and general feelings of sedentariness. When I learned that it was likely horrible for my health, if not fatal, I decided to do something about it.
This is my prototype standing desk. It goes on top of my regular desk, but I plan to make a taller one that stands on the floor once I have the ergonomics tuned. This desk is made from lumber, wood screws, and lag bolts I already had. The next version might be prettier.
Then again, I hate wobbly furniture. This thing isn’t wobbly at all. Maybe I’ll stick with the same general specs.
