The Sawhorse Standing Desk

The Sawhorse Standing Desk

Last weekend we shared The Improvised Standing Desk with you and today we’re back to highlight another improvised standing desk, made from a hacked-apart regular desk, saw horses and some extra lumber.

Lifehacker reader John Knox made this standing desk from a cast off desk, leftover lumber and some ingenuity.

Part Ikea-hack. Part cradle-to-cradle design project. This Rumsfeld-modern standing desk features an alley-found desktop cut to size and mounted on two long stored in the basement Ikea sawhorses. Two adjustable wing shelves are salvaged lumber from a spouse rejected over-sized trundle project. Note the attached “pen …on a chain”, arguably the greatest office efficiency device invented since the pencil sharpener.

Further evidence that if you’re serious enough about standing and saving your posture in the process, you’ll find a way to do it on even the most limited of budgets.
