Drafting Stool

Post by John Feagin » Sat Apr 18, 2009 11:36 am

Any of you use a drafting stool with a foot ring rather than the old chair a foot stool? I tried one out in the computer lab and it seem to be about perfect for me. Foot goes back knee goes up just like a foot stool but the position of the foot going under me seems to take a lot of stress off of my back. It just seems more natural to me.

Anyway when I get back home, I am going to look into it.

Hi John,

I may be misunderstanding the situation here but, do you take your guitar to work with you 8) ?

Regards,
Paul G.

Actually no, I guess what I meant was that I sat on one of the stools and thought it would be great to use to play the guitar... However, if I ever have to do some mid-night shift and none of the suits are around... then I just may play away :)

I have a stool that has a foot ring also, and it seems to eliminate the need for a foot rest.
It's an good option to stools and supports.
