I've wanted a standing desk for a while and after reading this blog post I figured why not?

Unfortunately you can't get the Viktor shelf anymore, all the links were US centric and I wanted a larger desk area so I've modified and converted it for people in the UK who need more space.

  • Taller table so I don't have to use monitor raisers
    • I've not found a good one on Ikea so far

Closing thoughts

I'd definitely suggest putting the LACK coffee table on your desk to figure out the correct height for the keyboard/mouse shelf, using the ergonomic image from here.

So far, I'm really enjoying my new standing setup!
