Do You Display Your Keyboards?

I've only just gotten back into mechanical keyboards, but I'm seeing already that I will soon have a small collection. I have a mostly blank wall in my office and I'm entertaining the idea of hanging/mounting/displaying them somehow.

I can't be the first person to think of this, so i thought I'd throw the question out to everyone else.

Do you display your boards? If so, how do you do it?

i don't display them, i store them in closed shelves.

I've thought about it but just don't have the room.

No, I don't. Keyboards are merely tools for me. Apart from that I only have two so not much to show off anyways.

I don't, but you might want to look at shop fittings. Slat wall is really versatile, but something with some sort of glass cover would keep the dust from your boards.

I've been thinking of some shelf like this:

but haven't had any luck to source local, and don't want to pay a fortune for shipping heavy furniture item. Maybe when it gets warmer I will just build myself.

Wow, that looks fantastic and so simple. CeeSA did a nice job with that and thank you kbdfr for directing me to it.

That's a really great idea lysol. I like how it's slanted to present the keyboard a little better.

These are some great options to consider. Thanks again guys!

Found a couple of other ideas that I thought looked interesting, so I've created a Pinterest board. You can find it here.
