Cheap Standing Desk

Note i left the handle out so you can see it
  1. Using a standing desk hasn’t been as much of a shock to my body as i feared it might. I’ve had no major aches and pains, if/when i do get them during the day (mostly a soreness in my heel) i simply lower my desk and sit on the stool for a bit (as i am when i’m typing these words).
  2. The compromise that came with getting a very very cheap (my desk is easily 10% of the price of some sit/stand desks) is that i have to manually crank a handle, which takes about 90 seconds to move from sit/stand. It’d be great to just press a button but i saved myself £290 against the next best alternative, so i feel like i made the right compromise
  3. getting some mats was a very very good idea. i did ponder getting some anti-fatigue mats, and depending on how the next few weeks go i may do that, but i went for the cheap option and so far i’m very happy with them.
  4. Desk wobble was something i worried about having watched video reviews. its not an issue at all. yes there is some monitor wobble when i’m being particularly ferocious with my typing, but its not massive and its not a big deal.
