  • thinnest DIY roller chair mat - pergo laminate and plywood.

    I'd like to build a chairmat to replace the plastic mats that keep on breaking under my near 200lb middle age "dad bod".

    I just built a gaming computer and we have it set up in our main family room. The room has a decently thick berber style carpet with a cushy underlay.

    It's a sub $100 roller office chair with 5 rollers...

    I believe the extra pergo we have is 6mm thick (it's the old glue style from early 2000's). I'm wondering if I can glue it to a piece of 1/4" plywood? I don't want the joints to crack, but I don't want it to be super thick.

    I also need to figure out how to do the border...

    Berber is tough to roll on but if you can find a better caster it might work the best.

      There is a company that advertises on CNN SiriusXM channel that sells "glass floor mats"; they sound bullet proof and simple.

        I think your plan would work fine and have considered doing something similar.

          What about a piece of Puck board ( umhf ) , don't know the proper name. Morrows in Drumbo sell it in 1/4 and 3/8 in thick pieces. Last time I was there they had it in white and blue. Iirc the3/8 in was about $80 for a 4 x 8 sheet.

            Get a gaming chair that stays in one place but moves you around. Strap yourself in and game your brains out🤪🤪
