The Great Standing Desk Project


Who knew a desk could hold so much crap?

For a few months now I’ve been considering how to go about making my desk a standing desk. Mostly my thoughts revolved around raising my displays, mouse and keyboard, but that always seemed precarious and inconvenient. Finally I took a look at how the desk was built (it has been a while) and realized that the legs are extendable. A quick trip to Ikea’s website to look up my desk’s legs confirmed that they will rise to exactly the level I’d need.

So for the last few weeks I’ve been trying to get prepared to make the change. I’ve found though, and I repeat, damn, a desk can hold a whole lot of stuff.

Wish me luck on this, I hope to have the legs extended in the next few days. Then the period of great adjustment kicks in as I find myself unable to sit and work anymore.
