Possible Upcomming Chair Mod

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have abandoned the traditional desk set up a long time ago but I was fine for a long time using trackball style mouse, now however I have just bought a traditional style mouse and have a wireless keyboard on the way and I will be able to put my PC beside my 42" tv and my chair anywhere in the living room.
I now have the need for somewhere to put my mouse pad and keyboard to make for a much more comfortable experience. I have a La-z-boy cool chair it is the Bentley of chairs with a built in fridge and a 10 point heated massage and I intend on modding it to suite my needs. Attached is a rough sketch of what I am thinking of doing, the simpler the better. The keyboard tray and mouse tray must be able to swivel out of the way and even come off in case I have company coming over that doesn't need to see my super nerd side.

Please feel free to add and constructive criticism suggestion on materials or style. My initial plan was to have it attached to the feet of the chair but then I thought it would be better to have everything move with the chair's rocking motion.

The only materials I have gathered so far are the metal pipes I will use to support the trays.

That is le champion, if chairs. I WANT, at least more than a few bits of want.

And yeah, I guess it is just how "Stealth" you wish to go with the mods on le chair.

Only other thing you need to add is a swivel drink holder with a motor that can be directed using le mouse. :-D

Lol, the fridge has cup holders built in on the lid but they are rather shallow to trust in a rocking chair.
I have never actually used the fridge because it's probably no where near efficient enough to be worth it, my kitchen is just around the corner from me.
It's more of a cooler than a fridge because they tell you to only keep pre-chilled drinks in it, I'm guessing you would burn it out trying to chill drinks in it.
