Adjustable Desk

Whether you prefer to stand or sit while working, this unique desk can adjust to suit your needs.

Standing desks are increasingly popular these days, mainly due to concerns about fitness, as well as the back problems related to sitting all day. But there’s something nice and familiar about a desk you can sit at from time to time, as well. This innovative, adjustable desk offers the best of both worlds. The top is formed from two glued-up, solid-wood panels that are connected to one another with aluminum arms mounted to a center pivot point. The panels can be adjusted in relation to one another much like a seesaw: When one goes up, the other goes down. This unique design allows you to raise the front panel to create a standing desk, or lower it to a standard desk height for sitting. And since people are all different heights, the desk position is infinitely adjustable between the high and low settings. Gas springs beneath the desk control the pivoting action for smooth operation.
