Published on September 15, 2013, by in Sitters.

Making your own desk allows you to customize it to fit your lifestyle and your preferences. Just about anything can be turned into a desk with a little creativity and know-how, and desks are as varied as the jobs we work while sitting at them. Whether you want a lap desk, a standing desk or a standard office desk, you’ll find ideas and inspiration in these 15 how-to blogs.

Laptop Desk

As more and more jobs rely on nothing more than a laptop, people are no longer tied to their desks. In fact, many people use their laptops as their namesake says – on their laps. However, this practice can be problematic over time. Laptops can overheat when not allowed to vent properly, not to mention it can be uncomfortable to sit with a computer on your lap for an extended period of time. If you’re looking for a way to make a small lap desk for your laptop, look no further than these five blogs.

Standing Desk

Standing desks are becoming more popular, both in home offices and in the work place, because they allow you to burn more calories than sitting at a desk all day does. These five blog articles discuss the health benefits of using a standing desk, as well as explain how you can make your own version.

Student or Office Desk

There are many uses for the traditional desk, and you can make your own desk by using found items or inexpensive ones. Something as simple as a door set on top of two file cabinets works well as a desk, and can be customized by using a vintage door or one you’ve painted or repurposed. For other ideas for making your own desk, take a look at these five blogs.
