Standing Desk Add-on

I wanted to have a standing desk, but still be flexible. Also, I didn’t want to replace my actual desk with my gaming pc setup on it. So I built a simple add-on for an existing desk.

I just measured the height the keyboard and the monitor or laptop should be at and bought corresponding furniture legs and mounting brackets. I used untreated spruce glued laminated timber in 80 cm x 50 cm and 80 x 30 cm. Both are 18 mm in thickness.

Unfortunately, I mixed up the finish and bought both polished and matte metal pieces, but this doesn’t bother me too much.

It occurred to me only afterwards to share this, so I only have got a few pictures and no footage of the process. But it’s pretty straightforward since there are only a few screws (M4 x 16) and two drilled holes involved.

Colour Changing Speech Bubble

I converted a blindingly bright white LED speech bubble with eye-pleasing slow colour changing LEDs.

This time I tried to document the project in video format. You can watch it on YouTube. This is the first published video and overall I’m quite happy with the result. I used an iPad mini as a camera and a Tascam DR-05X with a lavalier microphone for audio. I adjusted the audio slightly in Audacity (high pass filter and noise removal) and edited everything with iMovie.
