I have been reading up lately on the benefits of working whilst stood up. They include weight loss, improved posture and other health gains.

After dropping numerous hints and directly asking for a standing desk at work I decided to bite the bullet and build my own by following some simple steps from this site

I bought the parts lat week and built the desk on Friday. I left it until about 14:30 this afternoon and then installed my new standing desk attachment and used it for the last 2 1/2 hours of the day.

Here’s a couple of pics.
