The Stand-Up Desk was designed to ease a friends back-problems from too much sitting on a normal desk. I chose cherry and mahogany with small wenge elements. The legs and cross-braces I shaped to make the desk look light despite ist height. The pivoting drawers were made following the instructions in FWW No. 234. I thank Garrett Hack for this idea.
A Stand-Up Desk for a tall friend with back-problems. Overall height is 125 cm.
The two pivoting drawers were inspired by Garrett Hack (FWW no. 234). I was apprehensive about risking them, but as it turned out, they were not as hard to make as I had thought.
I used Ash for the bent lamination in the drawers.
The top of the desk can be tilted to a 15 degree angle, ideal for writing.
A small wenge ridge to prevent papers from sliding off at the bottom of the tilted top.
