So, working from home on my dining room (and only) table, I have a few monitors and in order to get them to the right height I shove a couple of shoeboxes and books under them to get them to the right height. I don't have access to shed/back garden and general tools so building my own is not an (easy) option. Ideally I would like a simple box shelf or a low coffee table I can just place on my current table. A box structure of 2ft x 1 ft x 1ft. I had a look at charity shops and skips and as usual when I need one they are not around. I was thinking maybe a wall shelf which might have a back on it so it is pretty study/sturdy but can't see anything. I have tried argos/IKEA and online but no luck as yet. Any ideas from similar people with such problems ?

I'm looking for something that would be able to hold two monitors in width rather than individual stands as such. That way I can move the whole thing (sideways to longways) when not working to give more space. Also that would blend into the timber top table. Either of those would be OK if they were 24 inches in width though.
Something like this cubed storage except the height I want is 25cm rather than 33cm for example.

Thanks but unfortunately most monitor stands heightwise are well lower than 20cms which is why I'm looking beyond 'traditional' remedies.

I suggest you install a pole dancing pole for the missus and use it to mount your monitors while she's washing and cooking and cleaning and attending to her other domestic duties. Then in the evening she can get some exercise... suggest it to her and let us know how you get on :D
