Glad its not just me whos a bit mad, haha.
tbh its not a bad setup, i find it works quite well, although i may replace the noppoo with a filco or a gaming mechanical and put the noppoo on the secondary rig im building.

I made it from some scrap metal and wood I had at home. I'll post some more photos later if you want.

looks pretty sweet especially if it can be made for next to nothing at home, pictures/info would be awesome, even if just to see how you made it and if i end up not making my own

Yeah...that's what happens when a temporary arrangement turns into something more permanent. Luckily, I only have to deal with it on some weekends :D

€: And yeah...due to the lack of about...every possible piece of furniture, it really is that messy.

Yeah, that really improves the whole room ;)

Needs some work though, when I get the time this baby will get a bolt-mod. And maybe, it'll get my native layout one day :D

Aluminium is a fingerprint magnet :). It would be even worse if I had polished it.

Base is made of beech wood. Its about 200x150x25mm in size. Holes for supports were made with counterbore drill for M5 socket bolts. On bottom side I used countersink drill so bolts don't stick out.

Aluminium pipe was in bad shape when I found it but I was lucky enough that my father knows a guy at workshop and he made it a bit nicer for free :) I had all materials at home but hex socket bolts.

Total cost was 0.09€ (for hex socket bolts)

The idea is that you burn a few calories/build some fitness/stop trashing your back while you work. I've wanted one from the moment I heard about them.

plastics great, love the matte black dry feel over glossy keys I'm used to. I hope they never get glossed from wear.
