Wobble Seat





Introduction: Wobble Seat

Sitting all day is bad for your health. People with sedentary jobs have a much higher chance of heart disease than those who move around more. The wobble seat provides a solution similar to the Locus Seat deigned by Focal Upright Furniture (www.focaluprightfurniture.com) without breaking the bank.

This seat should be used with a stand height desk or drafting table. (Note the tabel in the first photo of the seat in use is not quite high enough, sorry.)

Great Job and Very creative! I like where your head is at.

Thinking through the traction issue on the bottom. I am going to try shoe goo. it is supposed to very durable and add months of life to shoes and other products. Just getting it smooth with a Popsicle stick would be the key so you don't have any ribs to prohibit movement. I'll post pictures after I make it... soon!

Sounds great! I look forward to seeing your version.


Here's mine.


You might consider leaving the basket ball form on instead of trying

to coat the concrete,

good traction and during basketball season all will think you cool.

Images of wobble seat with the adjustable height desk I made out of a hydraulic printer stand and some plywood.

That looks fantastic. Nice job! I promise it will be much better with a real seat on it. The one I used costs about $15 from Walmart. The noseless bike saddles work better than a traditional style seat. I have been casually looking for a tractor seat for mine. That would be ideal.

Thanks for posting this! I just made one of these little dudes last night. came out really well. I ended up cutting a basketball in half and inverting one side into a metal mixing bowl (that just happened to fit perfectly) to help it keep the nice flat bottom I wanted. Worked great. I also took someone's suggestion in the comments and put 4 carpentry screws through the basketball to tie the ball to the concrete. I still need to find a better seat (hoping to find a free old cruiser bike seat), but this works surprisingly well for now.

This is totally awesome! I hope you have a patent (or a pending one), you could really cash in on this. I haven't seen something so unique, so cool, and even beneficial in a very long time. You should be very proud!

Thank you so much for your comment. I am not planning to patent this one. Focal Upright Furniture makes seat similar to this one that probably holds some restricting patents. This design is for people like me who can't afford their awesome products but would like to enjoy the benefits.


Darn! That's too bad! I've never seen anything like this and I think it's amazing! I'm with you, I'll make it before I'll pay that kind of cash! I had my desk at work lifted so that I can sit or stand due to a couple of back surgeries and I'm going to try to make this one for sure! I'll send pics when I'm done.....gotta figure out where to find a crutch. :o) Thanks for sharing your skills with the rest of us....you did a fantastic job!
