Meet my new desk! It’s the result of a cumulative months of work over a period of two or three years. The idea is to make it as easy as possible to work around a curved spine, the legacy of a handful of twisted or dislocated ribs, premature osteoarthritis in hips and SI joints, and a torn labrum in the right hip that gets rude and achy when sat on for too long. This allows me to move from sitting to standing to walking with minimal interruption in workflow.
Yes, it’s a total kludge. But its kludginess makes it both cheap and versatile. The seat can be taken elsewhere, the table is a fantastic adjustable-height worktable, and the treadmill…well, that will always be a shitty, second-hand treadmill that I expect will die on me any second. I still need a few screws to help hold the pencil drawer keyboard tray in place. Also, the wheels on the table could use a bit of WD-40, which I know I own but I have no idea where it is.
But yeah, I have a proper desk again! Okay, an improper desk, but it’s nice.
