Standing Desk – A Little Later

Well, the good news it that I still have my desk on top of banana boxes at the moment and I have not gone back to simply sitting.

The bad news is that I haven’t found anything better than the banana boxes to prop my desk up on. Add to that the fact that I haven’t been able to spend much time at my desk recently and I don’t have a definitive conclusion as to whether I like this better or not.

Next on my list is to find a way to make this a little more permanent, or at least sturdy. I have some stringers in my garage that I might hack up into stilts for the desk and then try and rig together a stand for the monitor so that I don’t have to look down at it.

I’ve also started just closing the MacBook and running with a single monitor so that I eliminate some of my head movement back-and-forth. A minor thing, but I like having just a single focus. Wish it was a 27″ Cinema Display … but what are you going to do.

There have been time when I wished I could have sat down, but the desk isn’t set up for that so I’ve stuck it out. Maybe that is the point of having it be stationary at the moment so that I don’t have an easy way out. I’m still thinking that a GeekDesk Max might be in my future, but I would need to greatly expand Deck78 and pay down some debt before that would happen.

While it has been inconclusive so far, I have enjoyed the standing more than I thought I would. Part of that might be that I sit at work all day, so the standing is a good change of pace.
