NEWS – If you’ve considered buying a standing desk but changed your mind because they are bulky and expensive, I have an alternative for you. It’s the StorkStand and it’s the best of both worlds. This laptop stand is constructed of wood and aluminum and is built to hold up to 50 lbs! But if you have a 50 lb laptop then you have more problems than just finding a standing desk 😉 Joking aside, you can use the StorkStand on your lap or unfold the brace and hook it to the back of an office chair and presto chango, you have a standing desk! Check them out at storkstand.com where you can buy one for $99.

Unless one’s office is staffed by uncoordinated desk and chair-bumper colleagues this thing appears to be pretty stable as long as gravity is working. My 3 laptops all have rubber feet and I think would be secure on this thing. I’m intrigued, yet it seems pricey. My DIY wheels are turning…
My DIY wheels are turning to make a platform for my laptop while walking on the treadmill…
The web is full of clever DIY ways to do this! One can also pay $$$$ for a ready-made treadmill desk from major office furniture manufacturers. I’m able to walk up to around 1 mph while typing or participating in phone/video calls; faster, not so much.
The issue buying one for my treadmill is that the controls for speed are on the handles which is typically where the board rests. So I’ll need to make something. I just haven’t made time to do that. If I do, I’ll make a how-to article!
