    Does anyone have a monitor riser for their desk? I have a dual monitor setup for work and would like to raise my monitors a little higher, and put my docking station under the riser versus beside it, and have room for an iMac to the right for my personal PC...Anyone have this setup and have a picture of it? Any suggestions on a good riser?

    I use this deluxe one from JustMobile. Not cheap, but very functional.

    I made one a while back with a shelf and those door stoppers (stiff not springy) and I'm really enjoying it. Total cost was about $15. It's definitely not the prettiest but it's served me well. Sorry about the crappy picture.

    You could get a dual monitor stand that clamps to the back of your desk...

    That would be an elegant solution but only if your monitors support VESA mounts. I need a monitor riser as well to free up some of the space on my desk and bring the monitors to the level of my eyes but I can't mount my monitors on a stand like this.

    I have seen somewhere a DIY solution for monitor riser which I intent to do myself, with a larger shelf that could accommodate both monitors

    I did the Ikea hack you linked to above. Was about $20 in total, and love it! DSC02143.jpg

    I also did the same thing! I stumbled on this while browsing Pinterest one day and this person used IKEA parts.

    My whole project (with a brush, stain, and sandpaper) costed me around $20. Best investment and helps give a bit more extra desk space.
