While touring south Jersey we lodged one night at a Victorian inn in Cape Cod, and this particular device was situated by a very comfortable arm chair in our room. After pondering ( for several hours) about the use of this simple structure I found a set of instructions about it’s use written in the bottom.
I used some scrap pine and in a couple of hours made three of this foot rest as presents and to puzzle my family and friends.
In case you feel like building one, it has the shape of an upside “T” with one side of the “T” being 9”, the other one about 11”, for a total of 20” 3/4” and the perpendicular part about 18”, and 11” wide. It is surprisingly comfortable and easy to use. According to how tall you are, or how big are your feet, you can use the short side of the “T”, or the long side, which ever is more comfortable.
