I am tempted to get one, but I am actually afraid that it might be a stupid purchase.
My TekDesk top also seems to be a bit heat sensitive, so I make sure to use some coasters.
From a human perspective I do notice that standing becomes pretty uncomfortable after a bit, but I reckon your foot shape is going to make a big difference there. I can't stand still while barefoot for too long on my mat, but I do a lot better when wearing proper shoes.
Barefoot on the carpet I start to struggle after a while. The buffalo mat barefoot is as comfortable as the most comfortable shoes.
I think I stand for max 3 hours a day, but more like 1.5 - 2 hours on average. It does help though. Very few days go by where I never stand.
Got mine on Friday afternoon past and after almost two full days of use now, I can also say that this is one of the best buys I've made.I am tempted to get one, but I am actually afraid that it might be a stupid purchase.
Do you have any guidance or recommendations on making your own desk top for it? Looking to do the same, I have just ordred the frame, but I want a different top.I bought one of these last year on the Deskstand sale: https://www.deskstand.com/collectio...djustable-electronic-standing-desk-frame-only
I then made a 2200x800mm desk top for it.
One thing I can say is that whatever you go for, make sure it is easy to convert between sitting and standing.
Its not easy to stand for very long periods and depending on what you are doing it sometimes just makes more sense to sit.
There are times the standing function has saved me, worked 19 hours days for 3 weeks straight a few months back and standing literally stopped me from falling asleep while working.
I was looking for a bigger top than Deskstand were selling, I also wanted it in a different wood.Do you have any guidance or recommendations on making your own desk top for it? Looking to do the same, I have just ordred the frame, but I want a different top.
Awesome thank you, I will update on the forum when I sort mine outI was looking for a bigger top than Deskstand were selling, I also wanted it in a different wood.
So I took a sheet of shutter ply and cut that down to size( 850x1200cm) I then glued a piece of 3mm walnut ply to the top to fit the colour I was looking for.
Lastly I added hardwood edge banding to cover the outside surfaces and round off the look.
Its a pretty heavy top but the desk handles it easily, the only real downside is that there is a slight wobble when the desk is at full height, but you get used to it pretty quickly.
This one is a manual adjustable desk and it's going for R4000.
Shipping only in CT though. Looks like a bargain.
