DIY Standing Desk

DIY Standing Desk

Make a custom, rad looking standing desk.

I’m not a carpenter but I do covet nice looking furniture. I’m going to show you how to make a standing desk that looks hawt and suits your style, but doesn’t require access to a woodshed – nor a huge wad of cash.

People have been making DIY standing desks for a while, but they usually fall into one of two categories:

1. On the cheap. Which usually means unsightly, unstable, and generally cobbled together in look and feel.

2. Ultra nice. Beautifully constructed from scratch by a master craftsman in a pimped out garage, using expensive materials.

Finding a middle ground will keep us from looking like slobs, and we can spend the money saved on RAM upgrades and illegal drugs. I will show you how I built two different styles of standing desks, and provide tips for planning and constructing your own.

Here are the blog posts about the desks I made:
