We had the inspiration to use galvanized pipe for the desk legs and supports, this way we could create a custom standing desk with the desk we already owned, which is two IKEA table tops that are connected in an “L” shape. The great thing about making our own desk is that we could customize it to the height that felt most comfortable for B to work at. In the end he decided 40 inches was about right.
To make it we (meaning he) used 1/2” galvanized steel pipe and 1/2” galvanized flanges for the footings and to connect to the underside of the desk. For the connections we used galvanized “T" connectors and universal threaded connectors. All in all, it was an inexpensive way to refunction the desk and make a healthy change.
I saw this bike rack in the CB2 catalog and had planned on buying it for the office, but B found a piece of wood we used on the barn doors and decided to make it himself!
Now the bike is off the floor giving him more space for other workouts and it doubles as the perfect “art” for a man’s office.
B is really happy with the changes and I have to say I’m a little jealous of the space.
