Treadmill desk built from a Stairmaster 510plus (craigslist find), a modular industrial shelving unit from Home Depot, and a 1x12 pine shelf piece. Total cost (including treadmill) $165.00
Go cheap. Go slow. I think you should find success in your pragmatic approach. Nice job!
Nice work. How are you securing the shelf?
Used zip ties. Drilled four sets of holes, pulled the zip ties tight. Easy to remove and very stable. Much easier than drilling into the metal or using brackets. They don't really hurt usability on the top as they're towards the back of the desk. May try to make the keyboard desk a little easier to remove and reattach in the future. For now the incline on the treadmill is broken and I've set the max speed on the treadmill to 2mph via the service menu (so I'll ONLY be using for desk work for the time being).
I love to read about these inexpensive methods! I don't own a treadmill (yet), and I've resolved not to add anything to the credit card. So this is very promising! Thanks!
