Adjustable desk or adjustable me? Rubina’s standing work station

June 20th, 2012 by Rubina Quadri

Adjustable desks give you the option to sit or stand and are supercool. Making the desk adjustable is pretty complicated and required more time than I wanted to invest. I read something that said, “Adjust yourself.” Since I can’t stand all day, the option to sit was also a requirement. I work in a cardboard lab so it only made sense that I figure out a way to make it with cardboard.

In the above picture, the desktop is pulled out slightly to allow room for my knees when I do sit down. The pics below are of the cardboard supports I made. Check out our videos to see the techniques for creating layers of cardboard that can provide the strength to do this and how to join them together . You can also see what other resources I used here, on Delicious.
