Build A Standing Desk That Converts To A Work Table

Standing desks have become an essential fixture in any home office, but they are also on the pricey side. If you're on a tight budget, you can build a height-adjustable standing desk with basic materials from your local hardware store. Here's how it's done.

To build it, you'll need a 2x12 board of wood, some mending plates, 1/4" wood screws and a 3/4" black iron pipe. A circular saw is useful to cut the boards to length and you'll need a drill/driver to attach mending plates and the legs to the table.

To adjust the height of the table, just change out the lengths of the pipes. Check out the above video to see it in action.

    Sadly that type of pipe just isn't widely available in Australia.

    This costs about the same and a whole lot easier...
