Discussion on: Do you have a standing desk? Which one?

I am from India and I recently got a standing desk done. I got the flexispot one from Amazon. It supported only 70kgs or so. Hence, I got a custom table top built using WPC board. I was looking at IKEA Linnmon too but given that it's made up of cardboard, I gave up. I ended up making a 5ft by 2.5ft table top.

I will do a full review video may be after using for a few more weeks. But in general I stand a lot now. Also, if you have a puppy, this is the best thing. You can easily move around with a standing desk 😅

I did a video on the same too youtu.be/BkdJH4iTFjo

After getting the table, I actual started a youtube series on my office setup 😅

Here is a pic of the desk dev-to-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/i/...

P.S. The marks on the walls are thanks to my cute labrador Buddy 😂

Thank you 😊🙏 it's a yeelight strip. Works great alexa/google. Don't think it's as good as Philips hue strip though. But definitely helpful. Sometimes, I only work with that on 🙈

In India they don't ship the table top though. :-( so that's a bummer.

What?? Are they cheaper at least?

It costed $325 USD approximately. Don't know how much it is available for there. But it was okay as I wanted a custom table top anyway. 😅

That's the same price I paid, and it included the table top 😬

...and now it's even cheaper 😓
