After the download you can start with the project.
Step 2 – Disassembly of the old stool
The 4 feet of the stool must be unscrewed. These are further needed for the leg rest.
Step 3 – Shortening, drilling, countersinking and grinding
In the next step, I recommend shortening two legs at a time according to the plans and drilling the new holes. The base plate should be well sanded at the edges or even rounded with the router. Since the board rests on the sofa afterwards. and the edges shouldn’t leave any traces.
Step 4 – Mounting on base board
The shortened legs can now be screwed onto the base plate. Make sure that one foot of type A and one foot of type B are facing each other. The picture below should illustrate the correct position.
The screw hooks can now be screwed into the newly drilled holes in the type A holders. This is easier to do with a combination wrench.
Step 4 – Preparation of the risers
For our application, we cut off a piece of 50 cm from each of the tensioning straps available in the DIY store. The cut ends should be scorched with a lighter, otherwise the belt will fray. At each end of the belt, we hammered 10 eyelets at a distance of 2 cm. We used the eyelet set from Amazon for this.
At the other end of the straps we folded the end over and put in a 4×40 screw with washer. With the help of an awl you can pierce a hole in advance, then the screw goes through better.
Step 5 – Install straps and finish
Last but not least, the straps have to be screwed to the type B legs. Once this is done, the leg rest is ready and can be used. Our son has made good use of it and it has taken a lot of pain away from him as it provides a flexible and comfortable support.
