*Help* Building custom keyboard tray/slider for glass desk?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I want to try to add a custom keyboard tray/slider to a glass desk if its possible and if anyone has done it before.



This is the desk I have, would there be a way to add it on?

Are you sure you really want a tray? The only way I could see this being done is if you drilled holes which can, of course, cause cracking.

You can always use a strong adhesive of some sort rather than physical screws. though it limits the amount of max weight one can put on that keyboard slider

He can mount the slider bracket on the front and back metal lateral support bars.

I have a similar desk but it already has the tray: http://www.z-linedesigns.com/product/185-Matrix-Computer-Desk


If the glass is tempered, it will shatter if your attempt to drill it.

I was thinking of mounting the slider bracket on the metal bars the front and back.
