    I've got a humanscale office chair, quality bit of kit and comes with a long guarantee! If you're a desk worker its worth investing in a good/comfortable working environment!

    I do take BP tablets. I don't expect a stand up desk to cure me of everything. It's one more thing to help.

    You should work over in Scandinavia - there all the desks are height adjustable and most people work standing up - it is a Danish thing and the same on telly chat shows

    fella in the council office i work in has a height adjustable desk, he is over 6 foot and suffers with a bad back so they supplied him with this desk that goes up and down, not sure how high it goes but the desk is exactly the same as all the others in the office other than the electics /fittings underneath, it just looks like a standard desk so i would expect there availble from a normal office desk supplier

    ClientCo installs their software in a control centre where they have these incredible hydraulic desks about 20" long for each operator... they showed us once the crumpled remains of a metal bin which had 'accidentally' got squashed.

    Or...

    Yep it needs to be adjustable at various times of the day.

    I sit at my desk from 7.30 to 6.00 with an hour break. I run 4 times a week and walk the dogs but there is a lot of evidence that sitting all day is a killer even with regular exercise. On top of all that I'm nearing 40 with high blood pressure, so I'm looking at options for extending my life.

    I've read articles where people have managed about 70% of their time standing at their desk, so I'm aiming for this goal.

    Great pic of using multiple tables stacked But I do need something that will handle two large monitors, laptop screen and keyboard.

    2k is a fair bit of cash but if its something that I use everyday then I won't feel so guilty.

    And if it extends my life by one week then that extra invoice week would pay for the desk

    I built myself a massive work area using an un-needed kitchen worktop, Ikea sell big beefy metal legs you can use... you could of course attach them to a normal desktop but they do both fixed and adjustable ones (though you wouldn't be able to adjust the desk once built easily).

    This one goes up to 107cm, I've no idea if that's enough but it must be close-ish.
    VIKA BYSKE Leg - IKEA

    But anyway I do think you might be off with some DIY if this is for a home office and your concern is functionality rather than beauty.

    Interested to know how this pans out, I should probably look into it too really.
