My DIY IkeaHacked Standing Height Desk


I designed this as a standing height desk to be built to my actual (uncommon) dimensions. It’s meant to accommodate a treadmill at some point (still need to double check the dimensions for this part).  It’s to be constructed of cheap 2×4’s, dowels and glue, and 2 x Ikea 8′ Lagan Countertops. I put the expense at no more than $200, but it will probably be far less. — I hope to do some high quality renders soon. — -joshua

Edit 1:  I’ve been thinking more about the desk.  I’d like to find some sort of cool drawer-like container for the slots (e.g. banker’s boxes)?  It would also make more sense if it were modular, so it can be easily moved into tight spaces, by an individual. -j

I consume too much, without giving back. I see too many of my visions fade, as I drift into new ideas and confusion. This is the net to ensnare those dreams, bringing them closer to they’re final realization. This is the cauldron of my life’s efforts — however futile; the unwatched pot boils.
