Make A Standing Desk From A Filing Cabinet Drawer

The standing desk is a constant topic of discussion here at Lifehacker. Reader Luke was inspired by the potential ergonomic benefits to try one of the simplest possible standing desk approaches: resting your keyboard on an extended filing cabinet drawer.

I thought I'd give a standing desk a go after seeing a few featured on Lifehacker. Here's what I hacked together using a filing cabinet and a shelf from an old bookshelf (just a temporary thing while I test the standing concept out).

We've featured a different take on using a filing cabinet as a standing desk before. How well it works will probably depend on your height, but it's a pretty simple way to try out a standing desk and see if it's worth adopting a more permanent design. Thanks Luke!
