Anyone knows where I can buy convertible standing work/computer desk in Bangalore or online.
I am looking for the type that are sold by brands like ergotron, caretta, varidesk etc, but not necessarily the same brand as they are too expensive.
or you can see some examples here http://lifehacker.com/five-best-stan...sks-1528244287

Plastic would, for practicality, be best, but I am yet to see plastic doors that do not look like plastic doors. Glass would not suit the room. Would it should be.

Teak or related hardwoods is overkill and overbudget. What could I use? How is rubber wood at surviving damp?
Sorry for delayed contribution.
Do you wanna change the shower to the one where water flows vertically down than the diagonal direction and hitting the door?

I have a 4 door steel Godrej interio cupboard which needs to be dismantled and transported and reassembled. I logged a call with Godrej - their person called me and said Godrej's official charges are 4000 for just the dismantling and re-assembling (not the transport). But he said he will do it outside of Godrej's official service for 2,500. Found another guy also who said 2,000. He said it will take around 2 hours to dismantle and 4 hours to assemble. Anyone who has done this before?

Default Help for making a motor/device for 'Rocking small bed for my kid"

Dear All, this is not related to automotive but i know i can bank on you guys for helping me out with this one.
I have a 10 month old kid, and he doesn't sleep till we rock his small bed all night, you can understand this makes life tough. So I am thinking if i can connect a motor or a device with the bed which can rock it and be controlled electrically and be safe.
The bed is made up of wood.
Any help/leads will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

A fifty year old person has some health issues because of which he sometimes has to spend few weeks mostly on the bed occasionally. He works on the laptop for 5-6 hours a day when is on the bed. He doesn't want to be in fully horizon position all the time - wants to lean against the backrest of the bed - but since it's hard, he has to put a big pillow vertically against the backrest of the bed. This is not very comfortable though.

What would be a better option? Does anyone know if something like this be comfortable - http://www.amazon.in/KosmoCare-Premi...dp/B00ZUQ3OC0/

Or this - http://www.seniorshelf.com/Products/...d-8275288.aspx

Has anyone used any of these products? Is it comfortable for long hours?

If its that much of an issue, why not just get him a medical bed. You can adjust it any way you want for any posture you want.

He has refused to sleep in a medical bed. He says he doesn't want his home to become a hospital. He also has depression issues because of the illness, so nobody wants to force him.

There are some medical beds that look no different to a regular bed. But they can still incline/recline. I remember seeing one at some hospital a while back.
Try enquiring about it with the medical bed dealers.

He is not willing to change his current bed. This has been explored extensively. What I am looking for is other hacks/fixes like the wedges.

All the best for your quest though. Hope he gets well soon.

I have never owned or used a recliner in my life. I was wondering how convenient a recliner is for working with a 14" laptop for 5-6 hours at a stretch when I am working from home. I am sick of working on a table and chair and was looking for a change. I don't think I will be to try it out for a few minutes in a shop and get a feel for it, hence asking for opinions.

Does anyone else work on a laptop on anything other than a conventional work table/chair setting?

Pretty OK.
But you will have to try it out for at least 10-15 minutes at a shop. Stretch it out to the working level, and see that you have proper support for the lower back. Mine was bad in this regard, and now I have to use a cushion with it.

Check this site
They have innovative stuff

I had seen a memory foam wedge to elevate to 45 degrees but the link I pasted seems better. There are other options there too. Search for bed wedge.
