Choose from options to customize the desk to the user's needs or space including the size of the bamboo top and whether it has a curved or straight front. The basic metal frame is available in black or white and can expand up to 47.6 inches in height. A simple key pad at the front of the desk with up and down buttons allows the user to move the desk top up or down. Base price is $349.99.

What does it do: The compact light-weight heat gun quickly heats up to 500 degrees. The narrow nozzle allows for precise control making it useful for detail work. The company says the heat gun can be used to remove old paint from wood surfaces, help dry wet paint and remove adhesive-backed wallpaper and stickers.
