Help Finding/making Keyboard / Mouse Extendable Tray to Mounted Wall Monitor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I bought a Samsung 55/65" TV and mounted it to my brick wall with a OmniMount Play70.

My problem is I want to be able to put an extendable Keyboard / Mouse table which either connects to my SteelCase chair or find/build an extendable tray that I can move as I move the TV up an down/

In theory this would allow me to have a standing desk when I want to stand and work, or provide me the ability to sit down and work in the chair.

There has to be something like this, since I know Ergotron makes monitor mounts with extendable trays. There has to be something aftermarket that allows you to put a keyboard / mouse on it and extend the tray with the TV.

Anyone hear of any? This is all I was able to find so far and am racking my brain :-(

I found this model from ergotron, but it only works when mounted to the wall

Then eLink has this tray w/ a keyboard / mouse that attaches to the chair:

I'm not really familiar with any products, but if you do go the DIY route, this site has a few ideas on how to make extendable holders:

http://woodgears.ca/shop-tricks/lamp_extender.html

At the bottom of the page is a few more relevant links. They are geared towards lamps, but should be able to be beefed up for your needs. I remember seeing an awesome wooden standing desk but I can't find the link. It mounted to the wall and was adjustable. It had something on it similar to the trays in a fishing tackle box, so the keyboard/mouse tray could be lifted up and swung forward in an arc and then down for chair usage. The monitor then could slide down a track. If I find it I will post back.

There are a bunch of ideas if you search Google images for 'standing desk movable keyboard tray'. They have some trays for a stand up desk with a second tray underneath that flips out with a double hinged arm. I'm sure a lot of those pictures will lead to websites for retail products. They have one setup that looks like a dentist's chair complete with the overheat light arm, but with a monitor attached. Some pretty crazy things going on there!

That seems to be closer to what you are looking for. Wall or table mount. The table mount has clamps so it isn't a permanent modification.
