I needed a monitor stand at my office. At home, I have my monitors elevated so that I do not have to sit slumpted over to see the screens. At the office, I did not have this liberty. When I inquired about whether stands could be purchased, I told that it would be a lot of hurdles to get those added. However, I was allowed to bring my own monitor stand.
I chose to build one instead of buying one. I recorded a tutorial on how I went about doing this project. It did take some time getting used to, but the assembly was rather straightforward. I did my best to get pieces of lumber that were cut to the appropriate dimensions, so that I could reduce the number of cuts that I had to make.
Materials used are listed below. How it all came together is in the video above.
