Step 1: Howto

Before working, i drafted the standing desk in LibreCAD. I'm attaching a PDF of all the pieces that need to be cut out of cardboard. Dimensions are in millimeters and you can adapt them to your needs.

I didn't take pictures for all the cutting, but basically it's just cutting cardboard with a utility knife and using a long ruler. However here's a step by step video of how I built the standing desk.

    Thanks for sharing your build! I didn't know cardboard could support this kind of weight :D

    It really can! And the best thing is everyone has cardboard lying around so the cost is zero.
