I’m looking to start a new (hopefully quick) project for work. my money maker is in a cubicle, and I’d like to start having the ability to stand while I work. I have a dual monitor set up, so I would need to raise both monitors, and a keyboard/mouse arrangement. So far my thought process seems stuck on coming up with a plan akin to the adjustable sawhorses (like in the Family Handyman website and in their Readers Digest book) and just putting a piece of 3/4 in birch ply across the top and banding it so it looks decent. I’m sure this would work for the monitors since there wouldn’t be much movement – I’d put them on the desk before I raised or lowered the sawhorses/legs. Anybody out there done something similar to this? I’m working at getting my idea into SketchUp – plus deciding if I can downgrade from a 2×4 lumber to a 1×3 since the weight will be ~10lbs a monitor – if that? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks all!
