build a low cost standing desk

I’ve recently delved into designing low cost furniture that aims to spark collaboration in the workplace (see Make Space for some great background on the topic).  Given fabrication is relatively cheap in China there is freedom to rapidly prototype ideas without the fear of losing too much $$$ to iterations. 

Anyway, below are the specs for v2 of an agile, modular standing desk (circa $120 US).  I've also included a variant of Make Space's Periodic Table that is a little heartier for K12 settings (note the additional internal brace, leg bars and whiteboard top).

A lot of cred needs to go to #SISrocks staff for their feedback and ideas.  Not included is my design for an 'agile' whiteboard seat that ended up weighing about 10kg a piece.... :/
