v3 of standing desk design

This one is trying a sort of jamming locking adjusting sawtooth thing which works pretty good

let me know if you want me to print you one

Nice!
May I suggest a small packing piece, to sit in the slot between front and rear of each support, where each shelf is, to avoid the possibility of the front and rear of the support flexing towards each other under load?
Perhaps with a simple lateral peg to prevent it dropping through.......

@dangerousbeans

@IBob there is a bit of flex on the bigger shelf, because the back bit is cut like a big U shape to slide the other parts through - do you mean jamming something in there?

Nope. Darn, if only I was able to work with more than the backs of used envelopes and my old pencil stub here....(
I was concerned that if enough weight was applied to a shelf, it might cause the front and back ratchety bits to pull towards each other, since there is nothing to hold them apart.
This may not be an issue if the ratchets (and shelves where they meet the ratchets) have sharply defined (not rounded) edges?
My thought was if you had a packing piece between front and back of each ratchet, then the shelves would take a far higher load.

@Nina

Awesome! Can you design something for 'on the go'? I am now moving all the time so can't carry it around :( Btw, I tried this Gymba thingie - a standing platform, it's perfect and your feet don't start to burn. Maybe you can figure out how to also do this one in DIY style :)

@bob

And yep...see what you mean about the U shaped slot.
As it is, only the outer part of that U is carrying the shelf load.
A peg horizontally through a hole in the rear ratchet would distribute the load between inner and outer of the C.

Okay, none of this may be relevant...I have a bad(?) habit of overbuilding.
And right now I'm mostly avoiding my boring work....(

@dangerousbeans

@Nina I think @jolyon has some ideas for making a really compact one out of wire and spars which would be good for that

surfing board thing looks fun I normally just hop around on a rug

@Nina

This board is flexible so you can really stand for couple of hours and move feet around. Very good thing, just ridiculously expensive...

@jolyon tell us more :))

@neftaly

When you told me about it I imagined hiking into the bush, pulling it out of a backpack and setting up an office by a creek.

When I saw this design I suggested that the table section locked outwards into the ratchet - then the back of the platform wouldn't be canterlevered, and you wouldn't actually need to go all the way around the back either.

My hands and my hans are up! I am speaking for business Zach and @Zach!

@Nina

I am super interested in anything ergonomic, minimal, hand luggage friendly and affordable :) So hands up from me :)

@Nina

If I could also use it outdoor, that would be 3+ points :))
