Doing It Standing Up: Scott's DIY Standup Desk

This is a photo one of our own team shared, taken over at our Apartment Therapy offices in New York. Our grand poobah of tech, Scott, jerry-rigged himself a standing desk setup with anything and everything around him after hearing about the ergonomic benefits of working standing up. He plans to give it a week before deciding whether the upright position improves the aches and pains common to those of us who regularly work behind a monitor, and whether to setup up something more permanent. And Scott...we need those shelves back when you're done.

Have any readers out there had experience with standing desks? Are any newbies interested in giving it a try?
