@goldenhorse13 whats happened since the first StorkStand and how is this one better?
Mike GoldbergMaker@goldenhorse13 · Chief Stork,
Thanks @bentossell! We've made some exciting improvements this time around - a lot of them came directly from customer suggestions. We've had a lot of requests to increase the size of the desktop to better accommodate large keyboards and mouse setups - as well as give you a little more free space for taking notes, etc. So we have increased the desktop space substantially, as well as made the change to a slip-resistant, eco-friendly bamboo desktop. This is a really high-quality, sustainable bamboo plywood that really looks gorgeous when finished. The desktop comes with durable ABS plastic accents that include a soft-touch finish, as well as improved hardware for added stability. We've taken all we've learned making thousands of StorkStands by hand and are collaborating with some exciting designers who have been able to put a specialized touch on individual components. Finally, we wanted to make this more accessible to teams and freelancers who might be on a budget - so we are offering StorkStand 2 starting at $99. This is half our original retail price. Let me know if you have other questions - happy to help!

This is a brilliant idea-- I've worked in the office furniture vertical for 20 years and this is amazing. Many companies don't want to spend the money on sit stand desks--- the ones from IKEA and the other low end providers at below $400 don't last as I've thrown more of them out for clients in the past year than I can remember. This gives people an option and furthermore a device like this can be used in conference rooms-- no manufacturer has ever addressed sit stand in a conference environment Also by using the chairs up/down you have a simple way to adjust the height Well done
Mike GoldbergMaker@goldenhorse13 · Chief Stork,
Thank you @workstationw! So grateful to have the support of an expert in the office furniture space like yourself. We have definitely gone through dozens of other solutions ourselves - although there are high quality standing desks out there, they get expensive quickly. We're excited to get something out there that's flexible and affordable for startups and big teams. $99 allows more people to be healthy and that's what we're interested in. Thank you for your comment Bill - always welcome and appreciate feedback!

Nice idea! Would love to use a "digital nomad" edition that is light-weight, can be folded and put into the backpack.
Mike GoldbergMaker@goldenhorse13 · Chief Stork,
Love the suggestion @alex_kaul! We definitely have already begun to design more tools for the gig economy / digital nomad space. Our goal is to make it easy to be healthy wherever you work - really appreciate the support!

@goldenhorse13 @alex_kaul Seconded, I would love a travel edition of this. Mouse and phone space not necessary, just keep it small and lightweight!
