Loathe to spend more on monitor stands than you spent on your monitors? Built one yourself and save big.
Lifehacker read Nanu was happy with his dual monitors, but not so happy to spend a whole lot on a fancy dual monitor stand. He visited the local hardware and with a little elbow grease put together a sturdy stand for about $US15.
The trade off is a loss of flexibility, you'd better measure three times because the stand and monitor angle will be fixed in place. Even with that kind of trade off however, you're still saving hundreds of dollars and getting a very tidy stand with excellent cable management in the process. Check out his build guide at the link below for full details and pictures. Have a sweet DIY project to share? Let's hear about it in the comments.
