This was made from some plexi and an Ikea paper towel holder that I had laying around. I drilled some holes in the stainless steel crosspiece (don’t try this without a drill press and graduated high speed bits). I counterbored 4 screws into the plexi and bolted it together. It works and looks good. There is some bounce due to the springiness of the thin steel. This setup allows me to use a keyboard, tablet and maintain proper ergonomics. I also strap a miniature bungee cord just below the keyboard, mostly for peace of mind.
