"Yes, despite my best measuring I ended up with the vertical PVC pieces too short so I added a bit more. A homemade job but no problems to report. The approached allowed me to closely fit the required space constraints and the desk is 100% undamaged…"

"Wow. Love the design. The use of the PVC and wood shim is wild. I notice the connector pieces at the top. Was it because you didn't have enough length so they were added on? It seems like straight pieces going up would suffice. I have some PVC…"

Rob Gallagher commented on Frank Harper's blog post Back pain
"Glad you're feeling better. I don't do more than a couple hours on the treadmill desk at a time. Maybe that will become longer periods over time. Stretching is something I do aftward, too. Seems to be a good idea."

Rob Gallagher commented on Frank Harper's blog post Back pain
"Just a thought... have you made sure the work area is at a sufficient height so that your view is forward rather than down? I found some back pain initially when I started but that evaporated once I raised the monitors up a bit to a proper ergonomic…"

"The desk was purchased through amazon.com for ~$100 plus freight. The PVC, glue, wood shims cost ~$45. The total was more than I had originally wanted but the end result is nice - no regrets. I was unable to find another desk that fit the space so…"

"The PVC is 2" diameter. The desk legs rest on 1-1/2" PVC disks that rest on 1/4" bolts through the PVC. No drilling done through the desk legs. Wood shims were used to fix the legs firmly into the PVC. 3 sandbags on the bottom to help…"

Rob Gallagher replied to MJ's discussion PVC desk legs -- need ideas
"This thread is a few months old, but fyi, I just raised a desk using PVC and it seems to work ok. The rig ended up a little top-heavy so I've put a couple sand bags on the bottom. The reason I used PVC is that it allowed me to be precise in…"
