    No more sitting! I am a photographer. I haven't been able to work for about a year because of the three bulging discs in my back. I have only had this setup for a couple of days, but so far, things have been great. I am able to stay on the computer much longer so I kicked the chair out!

  2. Davidsss@sdf.com

    Great! Great stuff. Thanks!! My osteopath called it Fantastic and assures me this is a positive step towards the next decade or so of living large, playing my sports pain free and avoiding a bad back... among other things.

  3. Jon@asdfds.com

    Get up and get engaged! We're loving the new table here at Bolster. We're a Brand Engagement Agency in Minneapolis and what better way to get active and engaged than to get up from your chair and groove while working. I've been using this all week long and love it. Also, we appreciate the build-quality and design that fits perfectly with our office aesthetic.

  4. Katie@dfg.com

    Excellent Choice! I work from home and alternate between standing and sitting. The ModTable is strong enough to support the solid-wood top I have (from Ikea) and all my desk stuff, including a metal lamp and a cedar chest of drawers that's full of supplies. and I've been singing the praises of my ModTable. Some folks have even contacted me directly to ask about my experience (all good).

  5. vin@dfg.com

    Do yourself some good, order a ModTable! My name is Vincent Chacko and I decided to purchase a standing desk after hearing about all benefits about standing while you work. I work all day at a customer site as a contractor and unfortunately sitting is all they have there and the last thing I want to do is come home and sit down to catch up on personal stuff or other projects over the nights and weekends. Standing up and working has made all the difference. It provides more strength for my legs, more blood to my brain and easier thoughts to be formed whether I am solving technical problems, learning a new language online or just doing some personal browsing. I am a big proponent of change as a manner to create innovation and keep creativity moving and this desk has allowed me to do that. For my desk, I had an existing cube with complete metal structure that surrounded it that I used to sit behind. It was big, heavy and not conducive in any way to standing up. I decided to look into standing desks and after doing extensive research settled on the Multitable standing desk product. I also decided I would like to use the desk surface from the cube as my desktop as I love the surface and it fits the needs of what I do really well. I called Jacie and the folks at Multitable.com to order my desk and was blessed to receive an excellent, top notch, customer experience. They listened to what I wanted to do and supported me the whole way. They even shipped me another part and walked me through transforming my desk from a right hand operation to a left hand operation which then perfected my desk transformation completely. I also opted for the wheel kit and it has also made a big difference as I can move my desk around anywhere I choose within my office anytime I want. I cannot say enough good things about this company. In this dog eat dog, who cares about customer service world, I am blessed to find such caring and helpful people at a company with an equally amazing and valuable product. Do yourself some good, order there product. You will not be disappointed by the value you receive.

    Finally! I found a Standing Desk that doesn't break the bank! Finally! I found a height adjustable table that doesn't break the bank and that I can use as a writing desk in my home office. I'm a writer, and with the number of hours I spend at my desk every day, I needed something to combat the sedentary lifestyle. This is it! And thank you to everyone at MultiTable.com for your help from beginning to end. A very satisfied (and currently standing) customer.

  7. don@none.com

    Are You Kidding Me?? I can not believe the table I just bought. I got it yesterday and all I can say is……this is the greatest thing since sliced bread! My legs are already saying thank you. LOL. The quality of this table is above excellent. The mechanisms are all top notch. And the ease of use is beyond belief. I wish I would have known about this a long time ago. Thanks so much for your great service and quality product. I am so glad I have this.

  8. davss@none.com

    Highly Recommend! I love my MultiTable and working standing up. I feel so much better than when I sat all day. I recommend MultiTable to everyone I know who works at a desk. I'm standing at mine now!!

  9. mell@none.com

    Very Happy! I'm VERY HAPPY with the table. It is easy to crank up and down. I was worried that it might be difficult to crank. I was able to work comfortably on Friday and put in a 10 hour day. Sitting for 10 hours was becoming quite grueling. So, YAY! This is starting out GOOD.

  10. mike@d.com

    Exceeded Expectations Just put the table frame together. It exceeds my expectations. I appreciate how sturdy it is. Thanks very much!

  11. dew@noe.com

    Perfect for sit to stand This table base arrived very well packaged and was a snap for me to put together by myself. The components are very well constructed (all metal except for the plastic gear and handle). All the screws lined up well. The crank works smoothly and the height variation is perfect for sit to stand. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a manually adjustable table!

    No Duck Duck Goose in my office After visiting Dwell convention in Los Angeles and visiting their booth some years back, I've drooled and dreamed over the thought of owning my very own crankfest turbo desk! The treadmill seemed pretty hokey, but it grabbed the attention at least. Due to the numerous benefits, I haven't had a normal sit down desk in a few years. Along my path of transition, I tried a few cheap alternatives...desks that never achieved a proper height needed (not super tall, but at 6'2 I found hunching would be needed), desks that wobbled more than Gilligan at the helm of the S.S. Minnow or desks that were just ultimately a basic hazard (stacked bricks sans mortar ftw). I finally accepted the fact that I needed to pay some decent coin for a well made product. Shut up and review. Well made steel frame, no wobbles, easy to adjust up and down (even with loaded weight of 27" monitors and Cintiq tablet). I was concerned it would be a little top heavy at max height...nope ! I paired this with a solid wood top from IKEA (69.99 for solid wood is a great deal) and now have a desk I will have for many, many years with any luck. Please note, Multitable's tops are laminate cores...this is why I went with solid wood. I have a lot of heavy, sharp and tool'ish stuff in my office so I am always looking at durability first. I won't get into all the health benefits of standing while you work (I believe in your ability to googles), but I will say this...I most enjoy being able to booty shake while tweaking my nurbs and vector paths without needing to hunch over. That's reason alone for 5 stars in my book.

    Ultra Sturdy Does everything i need it too. ultra sturdy and fun to use

  14. dicken@none.com

    Wonderful Table Legs Wonderful table legs. This unit adjusts easily, silently and smoothly. I had a maple table top made for this unit to use as an adjustable sewing/cutting table. It's terrific.

  15. Detailed@none.com

    Perfect for an office desk Assembly was fairly straight forward. Give yourself an hour or so. I had difficulty tightening one of the two set screws. The supplied allen wrench was barely strong enough and bending while trying to tighten the set screw. I’m using this for an office desk with a 2ft x 5ft table top. I have a dual monitor stand clamped to the back edge of the table supporting 27” monitors. I find the base to be very stable in a raised position and can comfortably lean forward against the table top without the whole setup shaking. If someone bumps the table, the setup will shake, but it is very sturdy and nothing to worry about. Raising and lowering the stand with one hand is very easy. I estimate that my base is supporting around 100 lbs. The only concern I have is how long the plastic gear will hold up.

  16. smith@noe.com

    I really like this stand I really like this stand. I bought my table top from Ikea for cheap! If you have an Ikea nearby, that's the best way to do it. I'm using it right now as I write this. It's easy to move up and down. It can accommodate many different table sizes and wasn't too hard to put together. The instructions were good enough and took about a "distracted" hour to setup.

  17. reel@none.com

    Great as a treadmill desk The hand crank allows me to easily adjust the desk height by myself to exactly the right ergonomic height. I put a top on this table for $26 from IKEA. I use this desk with the LifeSpan treadmill and it is very stable - no wobbling even while I walk and type. I'm completely satisfied with how this desk works w/ my treadmill. (

  18. hardman@none.com

    Outstanding! Kudos to MultiTable Solid, well conceived and engineered standing desk frame. This is not a cheap piece of machinery. Instructions were clear and concise and components were simple yet made of high quality materials. I would recommend this desk frame highly.

  19. la@none.com

    Love It! Love it!!!! Very easy to raise and lower. Also really easy to assemble. If you have reasonable coordination, one person can assembly this on their own.

  20. fit@noe.com

    Five Stars from an Architect What can I say other than the product fits my needs perfectly. I love it. The table legs arrive is a study, professionally-packaged cardboard box, A great start. Pretty easy to assemble, high-quality fasteners and finish on the legs. It takes a good hour to unpack and assemble and some additional time to fasten a table top on it. As long as you tighten the bolts properly, the legs are very sturdy, even when I raise the table a good 4 ft. AFF. Think of starting an old jalopy when you use the crank mechanism. So five stars to MultiTable!.

  21. Dukenilnil@pepn.com

    Excellent Adjustable Table Excellent adjustable table. I have been wanting an adjustable sit/stand table for a while. I was looking for something that would also not break the bank. While this table is by no means inexpensive, it was one of the least expensive full-size adjustable table leg systems I found and very highly rated. The high ratings are well deserved. Details: * I am approximately 6'2" and this table rises to a comfortable standing height with room to spare * I have used the table at sitting height as well with both a traditional straight back chair and an exercise ball and the table adjusts to suitable heights for those as well * I installed a ~64" Ikea table top without any issues and it fits nicely * I have used the table while riding an exercise bike (road bike with an inside trainer attachment) as well, and while it is a close fit, the bike fit underneath the table and it the table top was a at a comfortable height * Moves from lowest to highest in about 25 full cranks (approximately 20 seconds) * I have 2 very large monitors (25" each), laptop and dock, phone, keyboard, mouse, 2 routers, and an additional 11" laptop device on the desk with plenty of room to spare Everything I was looking for in an adjustable table and very happy with the purchase

    Stand Up! I decided I wanted the option to stand at my work desk, where I'm on the computer for hours and hours a day. After considering DYI'ing something (lots of plans online if you look for ergonomic/sit-stand desks), I kept coming back to this base on Amazon. I decided the cost was worth the investment (I bought this for myself to use at work, after failing to get approval for my employer to pay for something like it), and ordered this base. I got it in two days (Amazon does not play around with the Prime 2 Day shipping). Dismantling my old wooden desk (they put those things together well, let me tell you) and keeping that top, which is 60" x 34" (and pretty heavy), I assembled this base by myself in about an hour (wasn't too bad, instructions are straight forward and tools are included) and mounted my old wooden desktop on it (that was less easy, solo). Mounting screws for the desktop came with the base, and presto, I had an adjustable desk! Now I did lose all of the storage space I had in my old desk, and you need to factor in the space/distance from walls, length of power and ethernet cords, etc when it comes to adjusting the height of the desk. While cranking the desk up and down takes a little effort, it's plenty manageable, and I actually find myself rarely sitting at it now (I've used it at work for nearly two months now). But, I'm glad it is adjustable, as it's very fine-tunable. I got an anti-fatigue mat to stand on at my desk, and for that I adjusted the heigh up maybe and inch or so. So, if you're considering an adjustable height desk, this base makes it pretty easy to make it happen, for a reasonable price too.

    Best price for sit-to-stand This is a wonderful, solidly constructed base. As far as I know, you won't find a sturdy, reliable sit-stand desk at a better price than this one. IKEA offers a variety of cheap table tops that will work with this base. I got a 47X24 inch top that works great. The width of the base is adjustable to support a variety of table sizes. This is nice because if you decide you need a smaller or bigger desk later, you can just buy a new top. Assembly from beginning to end probably took about 2 hours. This shakes more during height adjustment than the electronic sit-stand desk I used at my work before, but not enough to cause any concern for a standard computer. If you spend 8 hours a day sitting at a desk and are thinking about getting one for your health, do it. There's lots of evidence that sitting all the time is bad for you, even if you exercise regularly. I also find I don't get as sleepy when I mix sitting with some standing, so I'm more productive

  24. DinDC@none.com

    Rock Solid Flexibility at an Affordable Price Sitting behind a desk all day is not good for anyone, so the ability to switch quickly between standing and sitting is a real life saver. After plenty of research and sticker shock at the cost of adjustable work desks, I decided to give this manual ModTable a try. This base is rock solid. I have several monitors and my laptop atop the table along with the usual junk that inevitably accumulates and I have no problem raising and lowering the work surface. Everything simple moves up and down with the manual crank. It takes about 20 cranks in 20 seconds to move from my seated to my standing height, so I often switch between the two several times a day. I especially like to raise the work surface to the standing position in the afternoon when drowsiness sets in and makes it hard to stay focused otherwise. Rather than getting the bland laminate top, I purchased a solid hardwood table top from the local Swedish big box furniture store, which fit perfectly and makes for a beautiful adjustable desk.

    Five Stars Works Great!

  26. JCL@none.com

    Finally pulled the string on this one a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. This thing is rock solid I work from home on the computer every day, very long hours. Saw some reviews about the health benefits of the stand-up desk and have been wanting to give it a try for some time but hesitated because of the cost. Finally pulled the string on this one a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. This thing is rock solid. I'm 6'2" and mine's raised to the max (47"). It doesn't wobble at ALL. Super easy to crank up and down, too, and the crank comes right out so you don't have to have it sticking out of your desk all the time. Just put it in a drawer. I grabbed an IKEA table top for $20 and am now incredibly happy with my new setup. Looking forward to seeing the health benefits.

  27. DXC@none.com

    I LOVE this desk I LOVE this desk! I got the wheel kit (another $70 on their site) so that I can get a change of scenery around the house. I know there are a bunch of expensive electric ones out there, but I'm always worried about the lifespan of things with too many moving parts. This is a simple mechanism that's easy to use. It only takes about 10 cranks to get it from sitting to standing. I'm honestly considering buying another one for my workplace.

  28. Daniel@none.com

    5.0 out of 5 stars This is the standing desk you're looking for This desk is awesome! I got it set up today and am already in love with it. I put a 72" x 30" tabletop on it that I repurposed from an old conference table and I could not be happier. My tabletop is the largest size that is recommended for this model. The desk is excellent quality. You can tell the engineers at MultiTable put a lot of love and attention into it. It's packed fairly flat, in a 50lb box, similar to an IKEA product, but the quality is A+. As soon as you open the box, you can tell it's a great product. There's a hand-signed inspection letter and the instructions were definitely designed by someone who was thinking about those of us who have to put it together. I had it set up in less than an hour. The desk adjusts from just a few feet off the ground up to about 48". The handle is smooth and is almost effortless to turn. I have it around elbow height at 41". It feels comfortable and so much better than sitting hunched over a drawing tablet all day. No more broiled shrimp posture! If you're thinking about getting an adjustable desk, this is it. I cannot recommend it enough. I can already tell it is worth every penny.

  29. KC@none.com

    Love it! This desk is just what I was looking for. Quality is very good, stable, looks good. Had someone put it together for me as am not good with that kind of thing. VERY happy with this purchase!

  30. JM@none.com

    Extremely satisfied Excellent solution...extremely satisfied with the fit and finish of the product. Has created a lot of interest from my co-workers, a lot more orders on the way most likely. :-)

  31. jackson@none.com

    Only good things to say Unfortunately the first one I ordered arrived slightly damaged. The packaging is efficient, but the corners don't offer much protection if this heavy package is dropped on any of the corners. Assembly is pretty straight forward, the instructions were great. I got the black base, and the color is a solid black (the picture makes it look almost gunmetal gray). The crank mechanism works well, and while I was debating going with the electronic version, I'm happy I went with the manual version simply because of the cost savings. I don't adjust it at all as I bought it solely for a standing desk, I just couldn't find a desk with the exact height I needed. Other reviews say the table wobbles the higher it is lifted, but under normal use, it doesn't wobble at all for me. I use two monitors and raising/lowering the desk is very quiet - pretty much non-existent if you go slow. And for me it takes maybe 10-15 seconds to lower it from top to bottom. I'd recommend this to anyone that wants a good quality standing desk.

  32. Patrick@non.com

    Excellent for DIYers and people who need to work standing Very compact box and easy to assemble. In fact, I was impressed at how clear the instructions were. The table is very sturdy and well-built. I mounted a corner desktop on it which I bought at Ikea. Be aware that the crank goes in just under the desktop height so if you use a non-rectangular desktop that comes out more than a few inches past the front of the frame, you won't be able to turn the crank. However, this isn't the table's fault; and I just put the crank in my drillgun and raised/lowered the table that way. I didn't want the electric version, as I don't expect to change the height often. I'd buy it again.

  33. globedreamer@none.com

    Solved My Problem and Looks Nice Too Pretty great product. Not cheap - but worth it considering there are very few others like this available. I bought just the base and installed my own matching chipboard top from Menard's ($10.00 - chipboard is fine if you are in this for the functionality of it and not picky, and also makes installing the top easier since you don't need to drill holes before screwing in). The small "set screws" that must be tightened, using the small allen wrench, are very tough to get in - I thought my little wrists were going to snap before the screws were fully tightened). Aside from that installation is pretty much a breeze and cranking the handle is great - takes a little effort of course but not bad at all. I move mine up and down 1-2 times per day. Took a really long time to ship - plan ahead and practice patience.

  34. wood@none.com

    Where has it been all my life? This is a gem. It is beautifully constructed, goes together with ease and operates like a dream. I bought it without the top and made a custom drawing board/shelves/ light table to go on it. Sometimes I crank it up and down just for the pleasure of experiencing how beautifully the mechanism works. I wish I had gotten one of these years ago.

  35. gabor@none.com

    Great Product! I thought I was going to need to spend a grand to get a good quality sit/stand desk. At half that price, the multiTable is a great value. Assembly took me about an hour. The hardest part was adding my ikea tabletop straight. The crank mechanism works very well. I can go from sitting to standing in a matter of seconds. Best of all, working while sitting or standing feels the same as far as sturdiness. Overall, this is a great desk base at a good price. You pay a premium because of the mechanics. But when you compare it against other sit/stand options, its a very good deal.

  36. hum@none.com

    Amazing! Not much to add to all the other positive reviews! Love it! Simple to use and assemble and it works flawlessly!

  37. fly@none.com

    5-star quality, 5-star support, 5-star value I've been shopping standing desks for months and somehow missed this, which by the reviews seems to be the clear leader in the manual adjustable desk category. Since I had a desktop sized perfectly for my work area already, it was a no-brainer to make this choice, saving $130 over one with a top, and maybe a couple of grand over some of the deluxe power ones. 1: Quality. The build quality is excellent, everything is extremely sturdy steel and solid as a rock. And I love little engineering touches that demonstrate whole-product thinking like the fact that all the fasteners used to assemble the frame and attach the mechanism are identical - only one kind of fastener included, only one tool required. (There is a set of 4 small set screw used to tighten the rod under the table that are by necessity a smaller fastener and there is a wrench included for those, but they come in place and only need to be tightened.) 2: Support: I didn't find a small plastic cosmetic piece used to cover a fastener in the handle, and called the customer service number to see about getting one sent. No interactive voice system, just a guy named Ian who picked up the phone, was super friendly and helpful and promised to get one out that day. A few minutes later I found the part, and discovered that one of the drive shaft rods was a little bent, which I suspected may have happened when I tried to one-person a two-person assembly operation. I called and let Ian know about finding the piece and maybe damaging the rod, and he asked me to send a picture of the rod. I sent a video because it showed the bend better, and Ian picked up on a sound he didn't think was right in the video. His engineers told him the rod was not bent to a degree that it would matter, but to be safe, he sent a new assembly for that, as well as a replacement handle assembly because of the sound. I was able to use the desk fine in the mean time, and the pieces were as easy to swap out as the desk was to assemble. Sound gone, and I'm impressed with MultiTable's committment to quality and customer experience. Several times Ian mentioned that they would rather err on the side of caution to ensure that I had a great experience with the product, and they absolutely did. I've never had better customer service. 3: Value. What I wanted in a standing desk: Professional, clean design, high quality build, easily adjustable from sitting to standing, and a desktop that utilized my workspace as perfectly as my stationary desk. I got all those things for under $500 by keeping my current desktop. I was begrudingly expecting I might have to spend 3-5 times as much, given the pricing on the power desks. Cranking this desk is easy, and anyone without unusual physical limitations should be able to move it from shortest to tallest in the 15 seconds claimed with relative ease. Unless you have a shared workspace and can really get value out of an advanced feature like customizable height settings, and a corporate budget with willingness to spend to make your employees feel valued like royalty (all good things, just maybe don't apply to most of us) or some serious physical limitations, I think it would be a waste of resources to spring for another thousand bucks for an equal quality power desk. The incremental benefit can't compare with other places you could put the money. Count me in as an evangelist.

  38. dk@none.com

    Outstanding! I was a bit hesitant to spend so much money on a desk that costs so much and doesn't even have a table top. When I started putting it together I got really excited and realized that I had nothing to fear. The craftsmanship is absolutely amazing. It's a bit of a process to put together but nothing that can't be handled comfortably by two people of any size. You can really tell the high quality by how everything comes together just perfectly. The holes, the screws. For anyone that's ever had to put something together, this in comparison is a work of art. And that's just putting it together. Once it's all set up, cranking it up and down is very easy and smooth. It's all incredibly sturdy even with an inexpensive Ikea top on it. Everything from setup to everyday use is so fantastic that I find myself failing at my task to find one thing they could have improved so that this review would seem more balanced. Anyone looking to get a adjustable height desk should definitely consider this one even if it slightly expands the budget.

    Best Value for an Adjustable Desk I ordered the desk about 6 months ago, and have been using it every day, since. When I ordered the frame, it arrived promptly with Amazon's free shipping, which amazed me. It weighs 60 or so pounds! I created a table top of ¾ inch high quality plywood and veneer, and now have the best desk... and maybe the last desk... I'll ever buy. The frame has very sturdy construction, with the exception of the crank handle. The well coated steel feels sturdy enough to hold much more than advertised. The crank handle is a light plastic, but considering it's purpose, it seems appropriate enough. (I don't know what else I would have chosen if I were the engineer.) I've been using a cordless drill to rise and lower the desk, instead of the hand crank. It works great... though, I go back to the hand crank sometimes, just to get the calorie or two of exercise. It could go about an inch or ½ inch lower, to work better with one of my chairs, but with other chairs it works fine. I can proudly suggest this adjustable frame desk as the best value on the market... as long as you can fashion your own table top. :)

  40. Harvey@none.com

    Solid, work fine For a change a product that turns out to be better than impressions from photos. Good solid well made. Crank function works easily. I have had motorized desk for 15 years at workplace. The motor is not necessary! And in reality in keeping with the concept of doing something good for your health, obviously its better to use the crank a few times a day than to press a button. Only negative, and this is true for everything I have put together in passed 40+ years, some holes did not line up perfectly and so you have to be careful when putting screw in threads. I have also sent some suggestions to company for changes in instructions as some things were a bit misleading. BUT the table is easy to assemble. And putting the top on is easy as well when you turn base upside down onto top (bought a glued unfinished wood top for $30 at DIY market, gave several coats of polyurethane. You could also stain first if color other than natural desired). So I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the base, though seems a bit pricey.

    Sturdy, smooth, well-built, easy to assemble, and great therapy Sitting is the new smoking. Well, that got me shopping for a sit-stand table since I spend literally 8 hours a day at this keyboard for my transcription job. It took about an hour to put together with the allen wrenches included with the set (remember to really tighten the set screws or the crank shaft won't work properly). I used the desk top from my old desk. Height adjustment has a good range. I find that I can stand for much longer than I thought, and it just makes you feel better to be standing! I use a homemade foot rest because I use a foot pedal for work, and I can still use it while standing. With only 6 easy screws, the tabletop attaches quickly and I can change easily when I need a new/bigger one. Cranking to a different height takes less than a minute and is a breeze. Such a great investment in my health!

    Very Solid Sit Stand Desk After researching a ton of sit stand desks and seeing how expensive they were, I landed on the ModTable. I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg and didn't mind making my own table top. I grabbed an IKEA butcher block table top for $130 and made myself a huge custom top. this thing is nearly 6.5 feet wide x 4 feet deep and The ModTable has no problem cranking it up and down, with little wiggle on the way up and down. When it's in place it's solid as a rock. Setting it up was super easy and took about 45 minutes. The build quality is very solid for the most part. Everything is powder coated metal and the finish looks very nice. The only thing that was disappointing was the crank that you turn to get the desk up and down. There is a metal cylinder with a metal hex key that connects to a plastic crank handle. Well made plastic, but plastic nonetheless. This is the main piece you'll be touching multiple times a day to crank it up and down and it feels kinda cheap. For nearly $500 I would expect a metal handle. PROS: + Price compared to other sit stand desks is very competitive + Build quality is great with the exception of the plastic crank + The finish is a super nice matte black that doesn't scratch easily CONS: - Thing is still expensive as hell for what you get (no table top) - Plastic crank handle - Doesn't come with a top. Plan on spending an additional 100 bucks to get a table that doesn't look like crap. You're spending $480 on a desk so having a piece of particle board as a top would just be dumb in my mind. I get a lot of compliments on the table, but people are ALWAYS surprised when I tell them it costs nearly $500 for the metal parts. For me it's definitely worth it. I'm a normal height and weight 26 year old graphic designer and I typically stand for about 5 hours a day and sit for 3. This thing has made my back feel soooo much better. Sitting down is not good for you yadda yadda, but the fact is I feel much better at the end of the day if I stand for a few hours while working.

    Love It Perfect for a sewing table - standing height for cutting, then lower it for sewing. I bought a wood table top at an unfinished furniture store and it looks lovely. There are some screws with painted threads and the instructions say to turn them three times. What they mean is screw them and loosen them three times until most of the paint comes off.

    Solid Standing Desk I liked being able to put a custom top on this desk... You can adjust the size or width which makes it super adaptable. The lowering/raising mechanism works great... and it doesn't take that much effort.

    Least cost for solid adjustable standing desk It was not hard to install; it took me <2hrs to dismantle my old desk and install this base (I took my time - measure twice, cut once...). I re-purposed my 63" x 24" x 1" slab desktop and am typing on it now. It is a solid product and works as advertised. I installed my keyboard tray and am typing on it with the desk surface cranked to 45" high.
