I often type leaning back in my chair with my keyboard on my lap. Has anyone tried devising a way of attaching these two sides onto a frame that lets you adjust the width and angle of the keyboard?
I'm thinking of just using something like a thin sheet of MDF board with a couple of slots cut into the middle. Then have a bolt coming out of the bottom of both halves and a nut on the bottom, where I can slide the keyboard halves back and forth, or rotate the keyboard to my preference. But if people have other ideas, I'm happy to hear if other people have already contemplated or designed such a solution.

Something like this? http://www.amazon.com/Aidata-Mouse-Platform-Under-Desk/dp/B00V2Q2B5I
Good idea though, it's the perfect keyboard for each 1/2 on each side of the chair! You've got me scheming now :)
I guess you could put two small shelves either side of the chair *shrugs*

I'm thinking more of a free floating base that the keyboard is semi-permanently attached to. The base can sit on top of my desk to be used in a traditional manner, or I can lean back, pick up the base and set it on my lap. I was originally thinking of holding the keyboard halves on with wing nuts, which would allow for quick and easy adjustments, but that would also make it non-flat for when it's sitting on my desk. I'll need to figure out a workable solution for that.
