What a fabulous idea, as it takes the weight off the machine, very clever.

I did place my order. And I could have built it myself. To those who have handy hubbies, the PVC pipe appears to be 1" Schedule 40 water pipe. I have a lot of it and the required fittings on hand to build a garden greenhouse. But I won't add another project to my long list of things to do.

Kathy, do you use for smaller sized (laptop,etc) as well. I would love it for the Queen sized but I don't make nearly as many of those. I think it would be nice to have when I do make one but in the meantime will I have more use for it than on rare occasions. Thanks!

All you would need to do is add some pvc across the top. They already have a 12" extension but if you needed more you could add it. Too much more and you might risk some sagging though.

I agree. I've built dog jumps for agility with pvc and it is really easy to do - BUT, I have enough projects without adding another. For those of you so inclined to do it, you can cut the pvc with a hacksaw but it is a lot easier with one of the specialty pvc cutters. I have one of those (somewhere!).
