I don’t know if anyone has been in the market for standing desks but (per @rose’s recommendation) I finally found some in stock at the Standup Desk Store and bit the bullet.

What did you end up going with?

Even more amazing: I ordered it yesterday and it will be to me on Thursday!

I went big and bulky and opted for the L desk. My wife and I both use the office at different times of the day and having to stack/shift/adjust computers/monitors/keyboards/trackpads/etc. is becoming incredibly annoying.

This will allow us to each have a dedicated workspace that can stay set up and won’t eat up as much space as two desks.

@derek.martin how has the desk been? Have been looking into a few standing desk options this week

Desk has been great! I have zero reservations with referring it.

Granted I had to unplug it so my three year old wouldn’t come in and raise/lower it constantly.

Hah! Good to know, sounds like the coolest toy for a 3 year old, I can’t blame him

One word of advice if you get their desk: while assembling, don’t tighten the screws all of the way on each step. Instead get them started and move on to the next step. Only go back and tighten all of them when you are done assembling that whole section of the desk. Otherwise you may run into issues where it seems like screws don’t fit into their pre-drilled and threaded holes.

Did you look into upliftdesk.com by any chance? I saw you mentioned Stand Up Desk Store

I looked into them but I had a couple reservations:
1. Their sizes would either under-utilize the space I have or dominate it. It’s a bit of an odd sized space.
2. The closest model/size would cost about 161% of the cost of the Stand Up Desk Store model.
3. They were out of stock. 🙂

I really like their desk tops though!

yea the wood looks really nice, a bit hard to justify the cost for the upgrade

I was sorely tempted to just buy a frame and then go get something I could reclaim from the Habitat ReStore. But then I remembered that I have a habit of not finishing my crafting projects.
