Very cool portable workstation

with 3 comments

Or not portable, if you want. It also occurs to me that this would be a great kid’s desk, since you could raise it as the kid grows by just raising the wall hooks (and the back of the desk would hide the earlier mounts). CoolTools tells us about it:

Planstation

I use this portable desk as a stationary desk at work and love it. If you need to relocate your workspace for whatever reason, it folds into a large portfolio style case with handles, so it’s quite easy to move your ‘hub’ with you. You have to provide two pieces of plywood, which slip into two pockets to create the rigid surfaces. Installation is a snap: two metal “O” rings on either edge allow for easy hooking on any sturdy screw/nail/hook. The rings are 48″ apart so they line up with any standard 16″ O.C. wall stud system. I’ve been using it for a little over a year now. Boy is it sturdy. The case is nylon with nylon bands well-stitched to support all stress points. The ability to adjust the height is key, as I prefer to use a stool rather than a chair at my work. The working distance from the floor to my desk is approximately 36″, so it’s more like a workbench, except with this desk, there are no legs to deal with.  — Jai Dixon

  1. I wonder how it would hold up to a largish cat jumping up on it (or down on it).

  2. Does this need to go flat against a wall to be sturdy?

  3. Don’t know, Brad. I don’t have one. Perhaps a note to the manufacturer?
