I’m thinking back to college days, money and ladies, and any method to get them, a surplus of both is ideal. I’m reckon we should get this going with the cheapest most functional solution possible.

Were you given a desk in your room? If not, buying one is gonna be cheaper no matter what than building without what might be a steeper commitment in tools.

to build your shelf:

1 piece of 3/4” Project plywood ripped to length of Piano Keyboard + 3 or 4”, width +1”
3 pieces of clean pine on edge must be taller than keyboard by an inch or so. Cut to length so that they form 3 sides of a box under the Project ply.

When you want to play move your comp keyboard and mouse out of the way, and slide your piano keyboard out.

Boom Bam done.

Some Spray poly, some sand paper, a couple screws all materials about $40-60, no drill, no biscut jointer, no dowel jig.

Spend it on beer and ladies.

If the heights aren’t perfect, that’s why your buying a height adjustable chair.
