You have probably seen some interesting articles and content about standing desks; they are a growing trend for those of us that sit in front of computers all day.  While the health benefits and detriments are being battled out by scientists everywhere, I knew this was something I wanted to try for myself.

The problem?  I didn't want to spend $1400 on a desk with a motor on it before knowing if I would like the result.  After doing some research online and finding this post by Colin Nederkoorn, I decided to give an IKEA mod a shot with some slight modifications.

I just did this today so I am still just starting into the world of standing desks but you can be sure I'll have updates as the weeks go by on our PC Perspective Podcast!
