How To: Build Your Own Hamster Wheel Standing Desk

September 18, 2014


This is the Instructable for how to build your own hamster wheel standing desk. That way you can work and exercise simultaneously. Hooray, now I can finally do my two least favorite things at the same time!

The project requires four sheets of plywood, two skate wheels, two pipes, and 240 wood screws.

Rise up, sedentary sentients, and unleash that untapped potential within by marching endlessly towards a brilliant future of focused work. Step forward into a world of infinite potential, bounded only by the smooth arcs of a wheel. Step forward into the Hamster Wheel Standing Desk that will usher in a new era of unprecedented productivity

You know what's even cooler than a hamster wheel desk? This hammock desk I just invented. "But where's the desk part?" I just rest my laptop on my belly. Plus look -- I hung a cupholder off the side. But you know what the problem with that is? "What?" Look at it -- what's the problem with it? "It's empty?" GO GET ME ANOTHER BEER.

Keep going for a timelapse of the build and a brief demo of the wheel in action.

Thanks to Sharon A, who agrees if God wanted us to exercise and work at the same time he would have made us all centaurs with our heads on backwards. Or something. I don't know!
