Its not for everyone but its really satisfying to design and build something yourself.

I'm still very impressed. I should contract you guys, Vince, to make me one. Sadly though, my room isant large enough for something that grand.

depends on the keyboard but most pop off pretty easy with a pocket knife (I dont recommend this for expensive boards they have actual tools for key removal) try prying one off on the number pad I recommend the minus sign as if you accidently screw up it isnt as big a deal, just slide the tip under and flatly twist, should pop right off. Also just to be clean I did not dirty up that keyboard I bought it used last week, the only thing you will find in my keyboards is spilled beer.

Small update

Ok so when I installed my projector I was left with a 42 inch Vizio 1080p LCD with no where to go, I sure as hell wasn't going to sell it as I would eat my shorts so I decided I didn't need a whiteboard anymore and used a old wll mount I had kicking around and BOOM

It kinda feels like I am living in a sports bar now.

Do you have good air ventilation / enough windows in that room? If you are going to spend a lot of time in there you will likely be glad for a good oxygen source. Helps keeping you fresh and awake :D

the room is underground but the HVAC system is in the adjoining room so it pumps a ton of filtered air into here plus there are 3 small windows as well.
