I bought myself a new desk to celebrate turning in Zeno’s Grant Proposal (not because I was happy with it but because I could no longer pick at it any more like a scab) and today it arrived! It’s super pretty.
The butcher blog surfacing is really lovely. And see the little control pad on the right? It does, indeed, make the desk go up and down! So I can finally have a desk that’s low enough for my short little torso.
And even more exciting, I can raise it up so I can work while standing, or even better:
Yes, I am excited indeed. It also gave me incentive to clean out my old desk, and I was able to cut down on the amount of stuff so it could fit in that three drawer plastic organizer. I have the packrat gene badly, so I have to fight against it every day. Having incentive to get rid of things (like the move coming up) really helps.
This is also one of the quietest sit/stand desks I’ve ever had. It was kind of a pain in the ass to assemble (and I am so very, very glad that my dad helped me) because it didn’t come with any of the correct holes for screws pre-drilled. And they actually send a cordless drill with it (really?) but it was, according to my dad, a very wimpy cordless drill. Now that it’s together, though, I’m very happy with it. It’s definitely the quietest sit/stand desk I’ve ever had.
