Cut a hole on the top section of square tubing for the leg to pass through...so the monitors slide up and down. Use a pair of clamps to secure at level comfortable for user.

Just a thought...not saying it already isn't fabulous.

Eh, he's gonna have to make a collar and do some welding to do that. Not many DIYers got a mig welder laying around, let alone a nice looking tig. Now if you've got the right friends...

I think the tubing one floating around the internet that you refer to is the one I designed (see sig). Gotta say you definitely improved on my design! Well done, looks sturdy and definitely prettier than mine!

The bezels hurts me eyes...lawl.

The mount looks very solid. With regards to the height, maybe you could have an adjustable height mechanism like what some have stated. Nice work.

Somebody in the Official Computer Room Pics had a DIY stand too. Emailed me a link to the guide translated (was in another language). Deleted it . I would do this.

I think it was your design, pretty freaking awesome ingenuity if you ask me, but you took your pictures down on your OCN thread so the only place to see it is on [H]. I think it wouldnt have taken me a day and a half to put together and probably would have done pretty well had I done it that way, would have been pretty awesome, just got lucky that my buddy had all his tools and was willing to put some effort in with me in getting it built

Perhaps, we were looking into making all sorts of adjustments while building, but I systematically cut each one out. Every time I stopped to think about whether it was necessary I thought about the last time I made a monitor adjustment, kept coming up with "never" I figured, as long as I could get them to line up, mount em permanently there, that permanentness (yay just made up a word) made it a pain to get everything lined up

I will have some WIP pics at some point today, not sure how much help they are going to be, it really is

Step 1 - Get a large pile of the metal/tubing of your choice
Step 2 - Measure correct distances and angles
Step 3 - Chop, cut, weld and grind until peices of metal resemble what you wanted
Step 4 - Figure out some sort of mounting system
Step 5 - realize your mounting system failed
Step 6 - Come up with new mounting system and accept results until you have more time
Step 7 - Re engineer in your head everything you spent all day doing and get prepared to chop it all up again
