    This is AWESOME! Great job! Did this table end up to be adjustable? If so, how? Curious cuz we are trying to hack something for my hubby’s desk where he could have a sit down desk but raise up the legs or something so he can have also counter height so he can stand and work as well… any ideas for that?
