Standing Desk Frames for Layout Baseboard Stands?
« on: May 15, 2019, 03:17:02 PM »
I just finished building my baseboard stands a month or so ago, but just saw an advertisement for Adjustable Height Standing Desk Frames (electric raise/lower - 350lbs of lifting force etc).. While it cost more than my wood base, this would have been an amazing option for me I think to use for my layout.

Had I to re-do it, I could lower the layout to sit & work, or raise high to get under/view the display..

Link to the company that offers the stands w/out the tops.. If anyone is interested. https://www.upliftdesk.com/adjustable-height-frames/

Is that something you'd really want to do regularly? I get having boards you can turn over to work on (as I don't have them and have to crawl around underneath), but that seems like a lot of hassle, I'd worry about tiny movements which wouldn't matter if it was used as a desk, but could cause misalignment between boards on a railway.

That is a very good point.. If you had to have multiple tables this would not be a solution, as I am sure the tolerances of moving multiple desks at same time is pretty much impossible.. But.. If you only need a single baseboard stand might not be a horrible solution. It would be similar to raising it on a pulley system to the ceiling, but then again, that works already and is a lot less expensive.
