Whether matchbook, wobble-wedge, or an adjustable pad under a chair or table leg … you generally have to bend down to the floor to make an adjustment.

I propose making furniture legs hollow, with a flexible shaft running through them that can turn a adjustment screw that raises or lowers the pad on the floor. But the levers or knobs are under the base of the chair or under each corner of a table top, Anyone sitting in their chair or at the table can reach the lever without getting up or crawling around on the floor.

closest patent I could find with a quick search [xaviergisz, Aug 02 2021]

       On top of the table is a maze with a pong pong ball. People sitting at the table must adjust the slant of the table repeatedly to get the ball through the maze, while eating, maintaining good table manners and talking about something else.

       [pertinax]; that's delicious! It deserves its own Idea; if not its own website & store.   

       (I think they should name the balls "pong pong balls" because that is much more fun to say.)

       [xaviergisz], that patent is close enough that I’d say my idea is mostly baked. The foot- end is almost exactly what I was thinking. All that’s missing is an adjustment lever or knob workable by hand, in lieu of a screwdriver as specified in the patent drawings and text. Thanks!

       That’s the case with most of my not-silly ideas. The less silly, the more likely someone thought of it before me. I just failed to do a patent search before posting this one and I don’t mind at all that you found it.
