how to raise my keyboard and monitor
Posted by: beerman

I may need to work standing for awhile so I'm looking for ways to raise my two monitors and my keyboard /mouse to the appropriate height. My first thought is to have something built that would sit on top of my desk but I'm wondering if anyone has seen something premade that would do the trick. Thank you for any ideas.

Big Lots has some cool monitor supports, sold under the Rolodex brand, with drawers in them.

What kind of height increase are you talking about?

12-20"?

In that range (or the upper portion) the end table sounds like a good, inexpensive idea.

With tender, loving care and no corporal punishment?

I grabbed a tape measure and I would say a 16" increase in height would be just right. I like the idea of buying an existing table.

there's always milk crates and duct tape to experiment with what you need.
