Inexpensive, nice looking DIY rig

I've posted two albums that I hope give a good idea of how I built an attractive and comfortable walking desk for about $800.00.

The prototype, and the (mostly) finished product.

I would love it if these posts help somebody else!

Hello James,

I wanted to tell you that you inspired me to get the same setup as you have!  I recently picked a Proform Crosswalk 397 at Sears for $360 and ordered a desk from VersaTables.  The desk hasn't arrived yet so I'm not done, but I'm really looking forward to it and the promised benefit.

Like others I first found out about treadmill desks from Susan Orlean's New Yorker article and was immediately hooked.

One question about the Proform console: Did you actually unscrew the plastic tray and remove the inner part, the actual console?  Did you have to cut off parts of the plastic housing or are the electronics of the console protected?

Thank you!
