There are any number of sliding under-desk keyboard shelves available. Simply put a plywood shelf on top of your keyboard stand, attach an under-desk keyboard shelf under it and put the keyboard on top of the shelf.

He could move the stand up a notch. He's going to have to make some kind of compromise or rearrangement.

Actually, no, that would be impossible. Putting the keyboard up a notch would stop my mixing gear from moving forward. Trust me when I say, I've been optimising this space for a while!

Sorry for no updates, but I've been rather busy. Here's a pic of the current fix which works surprisingly well. I just need to cut out the base platform to form some legs!

Rough design so far!

Good old gaffer tape. A great engineering solution!

Could also be useful if you fancied having sex with a horse.

You don't have to write songs. The world doesn't want you to write songs. It would probably prefer it if you didn't. So write songs if you want to. Otherwise, dont. Go fishing instead.

You seem to have put a lot of thought into that. ;)

Well, you don't want to die the way Catherine the Great apparently didn't.

Apologies for resurrecting an old post, but this seemed the best place. I use a digital piano as a master keyboard and would love to know if anybody has designs for, or purchased, a keyboard-mouse tray (scriptslide style) for a digital piano. Using my knees as a substitute for the mouse is much less practical. :D
