The Sit-Stand Cubby Workspace

The Sit-Stand Cubby Workspace

Maybe you like to sit while you work, or you prefer to stand, or maybe you like the flexibility to do either, the way Jayson S does with this sit/stand workspace. It's situated in a cubby with enough room to do both, as well as record some podcasts and space to spread out and get work done.

The shot above is the desk at standing height, with the sound dampening panels on the walls on either side of the desk to mute just enough sound and echoes for Jayson to do some recording with that microphone to the left. He offers up a complete list of his gear over at Flickr:

Added a new router (ASUS RTAC68U) and a Yeti Stereo Microphone since my last post.

Also installed some Sound Dampening Foam Panels to improve acoustics. .

For when he'd rather sit, here's a view of the same space in seating position -- essentially the desk is just lower:

The Sit-Stand Cubby Workspace

Since the IKEA Bekant desk can be electronically adjusted, all he has to do is press a button when he wants to change position, and the desk will raise or lower to his preferred position. It's a simple thing, but it works well, and with enough cable slack, keeps everything on top and below the desk looking good.
