Want to raiser and lower my workstation this high by switch or lever. Any ideas? As it is, it's a real pain to go back and forth. Would obviously be easier with a laptop.

I want to Rube-Goldberg something where the desktop is suspended from the ceiling on pulleys....
 
I'm thinking about that, but it needs to be stable at any height. Rails?
 
Pneumatic rails with a steam engine going pocketa-pocketa?
 
Seriously, though, if you can run dual monitors, stack one above the other, and then you just have to raise the keyboard when you want to stand.
 
I got excited when I saw the reasonably priced ones Katrina pointed at but none of them will adjust the 14" necessary.
 
Well, that was just a 5 second google search. I'm sure a more protracted one might turn up something better.
 
I know somebody who set up his desk to standing height, then got a "tall" office chair (think the height of a bar stool, such as a cashier might use).

Sometimes it's easier to lower the water than raise the bridge....
 
It is now officially a challenge to come up with a DIY solution that costs under $100.
 
"Drafting Chairs and Lab Stoosl" seems to be what you call the tall office chairs.
 
Yeah, the tall chair for a fixed standing desk seems the cheapest option.
 
I raised a desk with bed risers (around $15 at Bed Bath & Beyond) and bought a cool stool on closeout at Target for $30, I think. Bed risers won't help everyone, though, 'cause they come in limited sizes.
 
I was thinking the same as Gregory, but for that price you may as well just buy a laptop. Do a search on instructables.com. Maybe someone else has figured out a solution.
 
I would recommend flat panels mounted on a waldo, like medical monitors. They are around $100 for dual monitor wall mounts. That is what I want.
 
Wait... Has no one thought to ask the big question: What are you working on there? That's not MS Word.

Any solution come up in the last year and 3 months?
