Eric's Standing Desk

This is something Eric has been wanting to do for a while. He spends a lot of time sitting at his job and when he gets home he thought it would be a great idea to put in a standing desk both for his health and to help him limit his computer time a bit. Yesterday he built a wall mounted standing desk. It took some rearrangement of the furniture in the loft but it looks awesome! Here are some pics,

The desk is made out of leftover bamboo flooring among other things. Eric also put in a metal plate at the back of the monitor stands (which are also hand made by Eric) to use with magnets as a bulletin board.

this is the new arrangement of the furniture, it actually worked out really well!

 Personally I prefer to sit when at the computer but maybe if I didn't have a job that kept me on my feet all day I would feel differently. In any case I think it's a great plan for Eric and I hope he will feel better as a result of it. More blog posts to come soon, I have some pics of the progress we are making in the kitchen to share in the near future.


  1. Very nice. I'd think an arrangement like this would be great in a garage or workbench area though too; somewhere where you would want to reference things (or change the music), but not actually spend a lot of time at.

  2. I love it! I've been planning to do the same thing for myself, so it's great to see someone DIY the project first. Nice inspiration.
