Build an Adjustable Standing Desk with Pipe and Kee Klamp. This project got stared the other day when I read and discussed a couple of posts on the Lifehacker web site about the health risks of working while sitting all the time.

Build an Adjustable Standing Desk with Pipe and Kee Klamp

I got inspired to do something about it and decided that I would build myself a desk that I could stand at. One of the goals that I had for the desk was to make it versatile enough to be used in a number of settings. My thought was something that I could use in my office, but might also be used with a treadmill. In this video I talk about the idea for the standing desk: Design My design consisted of a telescoping pole that went from floor to ceiling and a perpendicular pole that could support a keyboard or laptop.

Custom Ergonomic Computer Desk

For me, having an ergonomic computer desk is an absolute essential. Recently, making the transition to working full time for myself, I decided that I needed a quality computer desk that would be adjustable and ergonomic. I quickly found myself frustrated with the high cost of ergonomic desks on the market. Researching desks started to give me an idea of what I did and did not want in a computer desk. After a discussion with a friend I decided to make the plunge into building a desk to fit my needs.

Basic Strategy I'm not a woodworker at heart, so I knew I needed to keep the construction of the desk simple. For the desk top I used a custom cut piece of MDF that I primed, painted and sealed (a must if you are using MDF). To make the desk ergonomic I custom cut some of the remaining MDF into a keyboard tray and bought an articulating keyboard adjustable unit. Getting Started The first thing I did was make a plan.

How to Build a Low-Cost Shoe Rack Using PVC Pipes. I actually have a lot of shoes, and putting them on the floor in my closet just makes for a very large mess, and makes it harder to find a matching pair.

How to Build a Low-Cost Shoe Rack Using PVC Pipes

So, this simple yet cool DIY shoe storage is actually something I could benefit from doing. This project shouldn't be too difficult to complete. You can get PVC pipe from your local hardware store and either have them cut it, or you can do it at home if you have a table saw. You can also opt to buy concrete forming tubes, which may be a little cheaper and easier to cut. Make sure you also get the right diameter for your shoes to fit in. 6 to 8 inch diameter pipe should be adequate for non-giants. Once you have the PVC pipe cut in the number of pieces you need (depends on your shoe collection), you can begin gluing the pieces together.

You'll want to start by gluing together a base, which can be 3-5 pieces wide depending on how much space you have in the room. When the base is done, you can start stacking the pipes.

Bending PVC pipe - Just because you can. PVC pipe is created by a process called extrusion.Extruded products are all around you: Spagetti, macaroni, aluminum door thresholds, vinyl window frames, plastic bags ... even plastic water bottles (which start as extrusions before they are blow molded) ... all these are extruded.

In the case of PVC pipe, chips (or beads) of rigid PVC plastic are heated up to a molten state and forced through a hole correspondng to the shape desired - in this case, a pipe. As the pipe is extruded, it is held in a straight line until it cools into a solid length of pipe. PVC is a thermoplastic - which means that it becomes soft when heat is applied. You can use this little tidbit of knowledge to heat and re-form the pipe to a new shape without compromising its physical properties ... if you are patient.

The best tool for heating the pipe is a heat gun - available for around $25 from your local hardware big box or online (search: 1500 watt dual temperature heat gun).
