Stand Up Workstation: Weekend Project Success

The plans (for this standup desk build) from Wes worked perfectly, and with some color help from Will, my "No Excuses, Results, Tim Deb Will"-appointed back panel'd standup work desk is complete.

Plans are above, made this and starting using it in early summer of 2009. Cost about $130 w/paint and those two extra top shelves. Early picture above, still have more to tweak. After two years of use, I have zero leg pain, more energy, and gets me through the afternoon Zzzzz's everyday.

Also learned that IKEA sells a smaller workstation that it height-adjustable for about the same price. Nice!

Need proof that standing up at a desk like these are worth the cost and adjustment? (Sitting is killing us!) How about cutting your heart attack risk by 40 percent, and more. (Full image below of benefits that's easier to read is here.)

I'm impressed! I am also envious that you seem to have the room to work a project like that.
