I would probably read a lot of scientific papers on my new desk, searching for a new way to understand and some day cure atherosclerosis.
And beside that, I will plan my next peak projects in the Alps and finally starting the documentation of all the hiking and climbing tours I’ve done the past few years.

I am an inventor and entrepreneur and am constantly at my desk working on something. When I am not drawing them I am writing or calculating or reading. This stand up desk will be put to extensive use doing these things. Who knows, the worlds next great invention may start out as a piece of paper and pencil on this very desk.

I’m a screenwriter and short story writer and would love to write standing just like my hero Hemingway.

I’m and Architect, and my next project is an addition to the child care center at my local church. I don’t work on computers when planning small projects, I still hand draft the way I was taught 30 years ago. If I had this desk, that’s how it would be used!

I’m a scribe (calligrapher) in my spare time and my current project is a hand-copied book of Lamentations on parchment. Depressing, sure but who knows? Maybe the next project will be a little happier. :)

Drawing andwoodwork are my hobbies, so anything from sketching a portrait of my family to drawing blueprints of my next project would be the things i would be using it for.

I am a graduate student and would primarily use it for reading and writing. Although, I’m sure some standing push-ups would also come into play.

Studying for the last semester of my MBA and daytrading futures contracts to pay for that last semester of my MBA.

I would do my school work on that standing desk.

I am a student veteran and a dreamer. I would use my new desk to allow me to finish my homework with less back pain. I am in the process of getting a BA in Business Management and would use this desk to not only finish school, but also build my business plan with my father. The standing desk would not only offer a great work space to follow my dreams from, it would also help relieve serious back issues. Thank you

I currently work in Higher Education specifically in Student Affairs and will be starting my MBA this Spring. I would use the desk to do not only my 9-5 but also my MBA studies. Beyond that I would like to use it as a daily reminder to improve my posture (as I have some lumbar back issues) while at my desk and then throughout the day. I feel that I could find a way to put some motivational reminders that are revealed when the desk raises and lowers to help keep me motivated. And who knows all mobility might spark a good business plan or an idea for my next career.

I’m a recruiter and amatuer woodworker. I would be taking calls and notes for work related purposes and drafting up plans for new woodworking projects. I suppose if I don’t win I can always build one (sans motor).

I am a state tax lawyer who spends long hours in an office chair and often wish I had a lecturn or other standing desk in my office for reviewing documents.

I would share it with my boyfriend, we would both use it for projects, hobbies, and drawing.

Sitting kills. I would use it for my home computer to avoid shortening my life even more.

As a web developer, I sit….a lot. I’ve been wanting a standing desk, but cannot afford it. I get up and stand up every now and then, but it’s just not the same. Love the site. Thanks for publishing.

I’m a software developer and got tired of sitting all day. I built this desk at my house for $200: http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/04/expedit-standing-desk.html. I’m 6’4” and had to make some slight modification to lower the desk. but so far this desk has been awesome!!

I’ll surf the internet and pay bills, etc. at home.
