How To Make Your Own Standing Desk

If you build it, good posture wll come.

Maybe your company doesn't have the resources to equip you with a fancy, high-tech standing desk, or perhaps your home office could use a little refurbishing. In any case, a workspace that keeps you from sitting all day long can be a great benefit, and you can make one yourself with a couple of bucks and a bit of elbow grease.

The folks over at HomeMadeModern crafted this simple and sleek table from a 2-inch by 12-inch by 12-foot wooden board and a set of pipes. The black iron pipes that serve as legs are not just for a funky, industrial aesthetic; they allow the height of the table to be adjusted so it can accomodate both short and tall co-workers. Find a list of the necessary supplies at homemade-modern.com.

Once you've acquired all your materials, you'll just need to sand the edges and corners, rub the board with some Danish oil, then afix the legs and make sure all is straight and sturdy (you might want to enlist the help of a friend -- make these cookies as a "thank you" treat).
