Built from the Ground Up

Making things with your own two hands is one of the greatest feelings. You can take a pile of materials that resemble nothing at all, and shape them into something functional. I always wanted to have my own office desk, but I wasn’t too fond of the ones that they have in the furniture stores. These desks always have weird designs and they aren’t always easy to put together. Sometimes they have pieces missing, make it impossible to finish the job. I bought a set of annular cutters, some wood, screws, and other materials to make my own desk with a bit of a twist.

The desk was a little different from the traditional desk that normally sits in an office. The desk has the ability to convert from a normal mode to a free standing mode, where the user can stand up and work if they want. People sit at their desks all day, and their bodies become tired. When you’re standing up, the blood in your body has can flow better, you feel less tired, and your legs get a little exercise. The height is adjustable so you can still type and write without having to hunch over.

There is also another mode that was added into the desk. While working at the desk, sometimes you just can’t avoid feeling sleep and may need to take a little nap. The desk can also convert into a bed where you can lay down and get a little rest. A nap every once in a while is good for workers so that they can become rejuvenated. Some companies even have a nap time built into their daily schedule. Those hours after lunch really make me sleepy, so I take 30 minutes to an hour to relax and let my body take a break.
