I spend eight or more hours a day at a desk job and, aside from not being the healthiest way to spend a day, it’s not particularly comfortable, either.
To try to remedy this situation, I designed and built a small tabletop stand that holds my laptop at a height appropriate for use while I’m standing. Now, tasks like email, writing, researching, etc. can all be tackled while on my feet, while still reserving the option to sit for work that might require being in a more relaxed physical position.
It’s a simple table made from 3/4” and 1/2” maple. The ventilation holes in the top provide for additional cooling to the laptop. The top stretcher is set lower than flush so as not to interfere with the air flow. The simple design of it works nicely with the rest of the workstation.
