Creating And Designing My Own Standing Desk

standing desks

I have been thinking a lot about standing desks again, my long commute combined with my hectic lifestyle, doesn’t leave a lot of time for exercise (that’s my excuse and I am sticking with it.).

 

After investing in a cross trainer which sees about an hour of use a week, the rest of its time being used as an expensive coat rack, I started to wonder about ways of burning a few extra calories when I suddenly remembered from my prior research into standing desks that you use 0.7 calories a minute by just standing instead of sitting.

DIY Garden Furniture

I don’t know about you but I am starting to feel a bit of a late bloomer, but I am yet to have my first barbeque of the summer, weather wise, there has been plenty of opportunity but sadly I keep putting it off, my main excuse being that there is nowhere for people to sit, I started to think about garden furniture, so again I went to pinterest for ideas, here is a collection of my favourites.

DIY Kee Klamp Guitar Stand

guitar stand banner

There is nothing like a bit of DIY Heavy Metal, this customer decided that his usual guitar rack was too flimsy and would rock far more than he would like.

Using our range of Kee Klamp Galvanised Steel fittings and our technical teams assistance, he not only came up with a stand that would only rock when he wants to, but would also give an industrial feel which would stand up to the attentions of Kurt Cobain at his most energetic.

DIY Gaming Table For Under £40!

Outside of Simplified…

We all need an escape from work, one of mine is Gaming,  not the type who rarely ventures into daylight with callused thumbs from using a games controller (although I do a bit of that too!) but I am more the type to turns up with boxes to a friend’s house or other suitable venue and roll dice.  I find if you are going to get properly involved it requires a level of modelling.

So this weekend, I was alerted to the plight of a couple of my gaming buddies, where they were unable to arrange a game as they were struggling to find a venue with a decent table. I do have a table but it’s about a third of the size of a table required for a ‘proper’ game as a typical gaming area is about 1.2 x 1.8m. So like a hero I decided to step forward and build one anew.

Top Five Shelving Ideas (and how to DIY)

top 5 DIY shelving ideas

Through necessity my mind has turned to Shelving units a lot recently, as a father to two children it doesn’t ever seem to matter how much space you have, clutter seems to be a force of nature, there never seems to be any way to stop it!

I am not quite at the point where I am resigned to a clutter filled life and I am (possibly foolishly) still trying to combat the steady encroach of …stuff!

Spotted! Interesting Industrial!

We do love it when people send in their pictures of all things fitted related, these pics found in Singapore show a Ralph Lauren retail display, using KeeKlamp you can see how easy it is to make a striking display to really make your product stand out, interestingly they used the 19 fitting for all the cross bracings for the structural support and 10 type fittings for the visual element.
