As of late there is ample information about how bad sitting all day at work is, especially if you are particularly out of shape (like me). Lots of people are praising the idea of using a standing desk, here are some links with more information on those topics:
- (2) Lack Side Tables ( if you prefer you can use a Lack coffee table) - $7.99/each
- (4) Ekby Valter shelf brackets - $4.00/each
- (1) Ekby Jarpen shelf - $14.99
- (8) 1⁄4” x 3.5” hex bolts - $0.24/each
- (16) 1⁄4” flat washers
- (8) 1⁄4” hex nuts
The assembly is simple. Put two of the legs on each lack table, these will be the back of your standing desk. With the front legs measure where you want your brackets attached. For me the brackets were mounted 2.75” up from the bottom. Drill the holes for the brackets in the legs, try to keep them as straight as possible. Next drill out the screw holes on the brackets so your bolts will fit through. Slide a washer onto the bolt, slip it through the bracket and leg and then put on another washer and finally the nut. Tighten that all up and then put the leg on the table. It is all pretty obvious once you get going.
When you are done you will have something like this:
