Vanitas desk

Standing desk

I keep thinking I'd like to get a table appropriate for use as a standing desk, i.e. one designed for being worked at while standing up.

I don't think I need a full whistles-and-bells one which switches back and forth from standing to sitting (such as this), although I'm willing to consider them. I've never used one before, so don't think I would want to invest much in my first variation. It needs to be big enough for a laptop and a book at most, rather than my main work space. Ideally, it would have adjustable height.

Something advertised as a bar table may actually be the most appropriate solution for this for now. This Ikea wooden table is a good price, but not adjustable and not actually currently available to buy either.

Thoughts or advice?
