UPDATE: I have been perfecting my standing desk after first making it 2 years ago. I had to condense it to fit in the corner of my baby's room. I have recently added a 27 inch Dell monitor to my workflow. It has to sit at an angle now, but it works and has increased my productivity as a graphic designer. I definitely recommend it. Just try it and if you get tired you can use a barstool occasionally. I will update again when I get a separate office. Let me know if you have any questions.
