The Handcrafted Standing Desk

Lifehacker readers frequently demonstrate how "If you can't find what you want, build it yourself" is their mantra of choice. This handcrafted standing desk is the most polished example we've featured.

Lifehacker reader clsynder created this beautiful standing desk for a variety of reasons. He couldn't find a standing desk that was the right height for his 6'4" stature, and he wanted to be able to comfortably rest his arms at a 90 degree angle. He also wanted a workspace that was tucked out of the way and had built in cable management.

The biggest benefit he has discovered from using the standing desk is that his body provides the perfect feedback for break times. Right around the time he starts to get tired of standing is usually right around the time he should be taking a break from computer work. Not being hunched over a desk and having a natural timer for your breaks sounds like a winning situation. Check out link below to see pictures of the desk in progress and the handy hidden cable management.
