Stack-a-Lack, or: A new approach to an Ikea standing desk

Recently, I stumbled over a couple of posts that pointed out the benefits of a standing desk or a sit/stand workplace. As I had much work to do work to do in front of the computer in 2012, my body felt weak and from time to time, I even got back pain of my sitting position.

Hi everybody!

My name is Rob, and over the years, i have commited loads of spare time to various DIY, electronics and life-hacking projects which did not always make my life easier, but still paid off in satisfaction and experience. And they certainly increased the number of tools in my workshop.

Over the years, some of the interesting news outlets started to overflow with posts of questionable value and (partly) idiotic projects. However, we already have Pinterest to window shop for projects, so there is no reason for me to post third party topics. Rather, I want to share my own experiences and projects that may be different from what you have already seen on the web and hopefully of use for most of the readers.

 

So enjoy the show and share my projects with everyone who can use them!
