  1. Gweek 28 in the header, Gweek 27 in the picture and download link, which is dead. You don’t have to be that weird! :-)

  2. I would love to see your plans for the adjustable standing desk. I have been trying to make something similar with a platform the can raise/lower on a mechanical wooden scissor lift type thing. I am in Calcutta where we have some great carpenters but scant access to good gears etc.

  3. Mark, about the adjustable standing desk, why not just use a bar stool or some sort of elevated chair when you need to sit down?
