« Part 33: Bathroom shelf rehab Part 34 of Current Project series no next part

Just to assure both of my fans that I’m still around, I’m posting this peek of what I’m currently working on. It’s that standing desk that I mentioned in a previous blog entry. It will sit on the corner of a desk top, thus it’s triangular. The ribs you see are to allow adjustability in case the user breaks their lleg and has to sit instead of stand. I guess it would also work if they used a high stool. If you look on the left side of the picture you can see the platforms for the keyboard and monitor. I figure I have a week to go on this yet. My last delay was figuring out where/how to place the mouse pad table.

FYI in this photo the desk is on it’s side. I was gluing the ribs on.

All will be clear when I post the project. Paciencu!

“The ribs you see are to allow adjustability in case the user breaks their lleg and has to sit instead of stand.”,
Wow, is it common for leg breaks to occur when using your stand?
Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

It just sounds better than (fill in debilitating injury of your choice). Our bank teller broke an ankle once and was out for months. I’m also not a fan of furniture that is custom made for an individual. I like adjustability.

Since my spell checker keeps underlining ‘adjustability’ in red, I’ll share this fun fact: The word for adjustability in Esperanto is: ’─Łustigebleco.’

So, the top rests on one of the ribs?

I broke my finger roller blading once,
Whats that got to do with woodworking I hear you say? well it got caught in a wooden picket fence, as I was speeding by, I accidently stumbled and in it went, which caused me to stop reasonably quickly I might add.
