Foot Rest under Computer Desk

It is one of those story posts. I had an idea to make a foot rest under my computer desk after struggling with temporary solutions like cardboard boxes. I had an idea to make a box out of some pallets I broke down and thus started my journey.

I figured about 12 inches high was the best height for me and my chair situation. Measured the distance from the desk and cut my pallet wood. I made a half rectangle box and put some wedges for feet on it and put it on my desk. It was exactly the right height, but it was hard and uncomfortable. The edges were digging into my feet and also it was wobbly without any base to the legs... so I took it back to my shop, routed around the edges, so it was rounded and put a cross beam support for the legs.

I then got an ingenious idea. I had an excellent memory foam mattress topping that was exiled downstairs after its lifetime. I brought that to my detached garage shop and cut a portion of it that I needed making sure to wrap the entire box all the way around and stapled it. I went to a fabric store and bought $5 worth of fabric and wrapped and stapled. It is amazing! I am sitting here writing this thing, and I am comfy and relaxed.

HAPPY PALLET WOOD CRAFTING!
