Jody Lemoine from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada submitted his ideal standing desk to Ikea Hackers. It is a Galant Table with a Galant Extension on Capita legs adding the height with an Ekby shelf on top of that for a monitor stand. In the U.K., the cost of the materials will set you back about £300.
