A simple & cheap stand up desk. No it is not adjustable, permanently high. Just got a drafters chair and kick it out when standing is desired. Built from (4) 2×4’s and (2) used solid core door slabs. The door slab desk tops were edge banded with a ripped 2×4. The monitor hutch was built with some of the left over door slab and I mounted a 110v outlet underneath the hutch. A drawer on the far left was made from garage scraps. I like building on the cheap but I’m pretty sure the chair cost me twice as much as the desk! lol!

Sure doesn’t look like it was “on the cheap,” nice job.
