Check out the post for tips from folks like , , and yours truly. It also features some DIY standing desk photos, including one version of mine.
On a related note, I've had several standing desk solutions in recent years and am in a bit of an in-between phase where I've purchased what I need for the next one and just need to get my butt in gear to assemble things (and solve the mystery of the missing stud finder).
If I manage to do that this week, I'll share it on the All Indie Writers blog or in the forum there. I'm pretty happy with the new solution because, although it's not adjustable and is set up for just one person, it can be set up for someone of any height. That's been my biggest issue with standing desks -- keeping the monitor high enough so that I'm not looking down at it while being able to comfortably type.
Read Laura's article. Good stuff in there. :)
