DIY standup desk

 I like standup desks and had a design rattling around in my noggin. Here is the parts list.

  1. 7, 1 in. Black Iron Floor Flange
  2. 3, 1 in. x 12 in. Black Iron Threaded Pipe
  3. 1, 1 in. x 18 in. Black Iron Threaded Pipe
  4. 28, #10 x 3/4 in. Zinc Plated Phillips Flat Head Wood Screw
  5. 1, 2 ft. x 4 ft. 3/4 in. hardwood ply (I used birch)
  6. 1, Universal Bracket Pole Mount with Removable 75mm and 100mm VESA Plate
I maximized the sheet of plywood by marking two triangles with 32 in. on the long side. That left small 16 in. triangles.

I clamped a guide on before cutting with a circular saw. I should have used a plywood blade, but I didn't have one laying around.  It splintered a little, but not bad.

Here's the 18 in. pipe with the VESA clamp.

And the whole thing with a Pi 400.

Requried software

 I work to do most things via the keyboard instead of the mouse. Having a clipboard manager is huge. Here are a few things I use.



Also, I like information on the desktop.
