I got tired of sitting around all day, every day… so I decided to take the plunge and make a stand-up workspace. After a bunch of my own designs involving 2×4′s and too much cutting and nailing, a fellow tweeter by the name of @spongsalot suggested this particularly simple solution:
It’s all about the pipes, baby.
That’s 16″ of PVC pipe with 12″ of dowel set inside, per leg. Lift the table, install pipe/dowel concoction for each leg, and set it down. Took about 20 minutes to cut everything, and 5 minutes to install. The pipe isn’t even glued or fastened to the dowel, so you can easily disassemble and adjust if needed.
Very clever and simple solution… thank you @spongsalot. It is this sort of useful lateral thinking that will keep your head from rolling once I conquer the galaxy.
