http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/227 ... f=category

Saw this, and I'm pretty surprised that anyone would pay $65 for a piece of wood. And the 'after kickstarter' price is $150!!!!

Something tells me this won't take off ;)

I've just paid £5 for 4 of these legs to go in the bottom of a server cabinet. I cant see the difference here between a sheet of wood and these and a $150 product!

if he would have come up with a very fast leveling system and made it out of something other than plywood, or at least painted and finished the plywood he may have done well.

150 is a huge markup for something you can make for under 10 bucks, most lumberyards have a scrap pile where you could find a proper sized piece of wood for pennies. add in the feet, and about 1 hour of time and you have one.

I had nothing good to say so I didn't say anything. Since you guys are commenting, I should remind you that Johnny Carson once advertised a "product" called "Dicky The Stick" which was just a stick. You could throw it, catch it, use it to prop open a door, etc. There were dozens of uses for Dicky The Stick...... I think it was just one of his comedy acts. My congrats if this guy does sell some of his Dicky The Sticks. Some people have the gift of being able to sell refrigerators to Eskimos. I apparently can't sell anything to anyone.

If anyone still has a pet rock or a chia-pet Elvis, this would make a perfect addition to the collection.
