I have never heard of the term standing desk. I had to look at the page to see what they were talking about. Now I will know what they mean. With my back troubles I would be calling it a punishment desk or torture desk. I think that chair would be a god send.

I use a stand up table for cutting all my fabrics on and after an hour or two of working I usually have to sit awhile to give my back a rest. This looks like the perfect solution for me but, looking at the instructions, its a bit beyond my woodworking capabilities so Id have to get someone to make it for me. Has anyone done this project? Id love to know if youre happy with the finished chair. Look forward to hearing from you!
