Work in Progress: Standing Desk
July 28, 2011I had a kludgy standing desk in the apartment. It was a serious kludge... but enough for me to get to like it. (I sit a lot at work.)
Except I gave away some of the bits I used for the kludge when I moved into the house.
And then I remembered - I relocated the dogs with the fireworks, and suddenly I've got an office space again!
I verified that the wifi reached (yes, especially after I moved the router), had enough extension cords (power outlets are at a premium here), and went to shelf-y town. Two hours later, this is what I have. (Click to embiggen and see notes.)
The cords still need arranged and cleaned up some - the rat's nest is not okay by my standards. But! The cool things are this:
1. Can get the laptop back out at a moment's notice.
2. Related: That bottom shelf is the right height for a kneeling chair and the laptop.
3. I can move most of my office-related stuff in there, and therefore keep it out-of-sight-and-mind when I'm not working.
4. Used already-owned stuff.
