DIY PVC-IKEA Treadmill Desk

DIY PVC-IKEA Treadmill Desk

check out the latest version


Built this treadmill desk for about a hundred bucks.  Gets me up and walking while I work which has been great.

Used 2 and 1.5 in PVC.  The legs extend for height adjustment.  Ikea sells the desk part for 15 bucks and the leg attachments I found in the 1/2 off bin.  Didn't end up needing Ts for the feet and could have just used a 90 degree elbow.  Routing out the 1.5 to 2 in reducer for each leg was difficult and would recommend a sanding brush drill bit to do the job.

A couple months have passed....

Recently I added some http://store.hermanmiller.com/  Flo Monitor Supports.  They are lightweight and easy to attach.
