Some years ago I was too busy to bend my legs when pulling a sheet of Plywood up offa da floor. Since that day I’ve had Sciatica, its OK I have it under control with exercise. (We weren’t bothered anyway I hear you all jeer) Any-a-ways I find standing at a desk better than sitting. OMG have you seen the price of those desks? So I built my own, cue picture of my office.
The desk top bitty, whatever you call it was just Black Ash Melamine shelving, cheap as chips at £42. Then I reached the issue of the legs. OMG (trying to appeal to younger audiences here) have you seen the price of desk legs? No wonder the stand up desks are so expensive. It’s at this point my BFF (yup still after that younger audience :-)) namely my wife steps up to the mark with plastic piping from Wickes, other merchants are available.
Four lengths were £8. So my £200 – £500 desk cost about £50. And my back is loving it 🙂
