So I was sitting and watching some TED talks the other day when I came across one of the subject of taking a walk for meeting. Lately I've been having more and more back pain and I'm finding it's due to mostly poor posture (slouching), but one of the points the speaker made was that "Sitting is our generation's new smoking". It was enough to get me motivated to try some changes. First most was to stop sitting so much, so I'm starting with my shop desk. A benefit of this is I'm getting my music equipment organized also.
So before the keyboard was on its own stand, my workspace was pretty much cluttered with computers. I use an all-in-one with a second monitor for the shop computer, the one on the left is my security camera monitor, the netbook I'm setting up for taking to the shooting range to snapshot my hits via a webcam on my spotting scope.
I purchased 6 shelf rolling rack from Sams Club, seemed like a good deal ($100) for the size and the fact it had shelf liners to keep small stuff from falling through.
I ended up cutting a piece of 1/2" MDF as a backer for the shelf holding my computer and extra monitor, I set the height of this shelf at 43" (credit to Brent, same height as his standing desk). The back side of my keyboard is pretty heavy, so I've found I can pull it out to over hang when I use it without it falling out, so this way I can view all of it's controls, then slide it back when not in use.
Moving the computer and monitor alone cleared up quite a bit of workspace. I still need to organize, but happy with the improvement.
Here is the new desk, still have a few more pieces of equipment to setup. Have a fatigue mat on order, should be in later this week.
Also played around and did a video of my new Korg nanoKontrol2 midi controller. I'm using it to manage my tracks in my DAW software.
