As I mentioned last time, my husband made me a desk for my treadmill.
It was a bit tricky because, as you can see below, the railings are not horizontal to the floor, they slope downward:
Here’s the treadmill with the desk on it, shown from the front:
Here’s from a side angle:
Here’s a close up of how it fits on the railing. Notice the foam he used to make it sit flat on the railing:
Here’s two pictures of the underside, taken while not on the treadmill (obviously):
Here’s the side so you can see how it is angled:
Please feel free to use this design on your own treadmill! If you have questions about how to make it, let me know and I can ask my husband. If your treadmill is the same type as ours, what I have should work exactly as it is on yours:
Since I usually use mine to read on, I need what I’m reading to be raised a bit or I have problems with my neck and back of head from from looking down the whole time. My husband made the additional stand to add height originally for another purpose. And then I use a cookbook stand I bought from Barnes and Noble for my book or magazine:
The additional stand does block the treadmill controls a bit, but not my that much. I just have to reach around or under to change the settings. But I really don’t do that much anyway, since I usually just keep it at 1.5 the whole time.
For more information about treadmill desks, here are some posts and sites where I first learned about the idea:
