    Re-claimed Shelving Unit?

    Adding a thread to a wooden beam?

    Let's talk office/computer chairs

    I'd actually recommend some Rubber or Plastic ferrules like these, fitted onto an office chair. This can help the grip, whilst stabilizing you at all times! Of course, this depends on the type of office chair you end up choosing as ones with wheels obviously wont work with ferrules.
