While I am waiting to build my new rig I needed something for my keyboard and mouse on my PVC rig. My landlord dropped by the other day and gave me a box full of PVC fittings, so I tried to make a keyboard & mouse holder with what I could find in that box.

Sorry about the bad pictures (and all the mess), I will take better ones =)

Well thanks to this thread and your ideas-- I finally made something.

About the 20mm box. If you have a good lot of it you could do something like the frames on older ducati bikes --it would make it good and strong. If you are welding it make sure you brace it all over as 20mm box would go all over the place with heat.Stagger weld it is best..I learned the hard way when I tried to make my front gates
My rig was nice and neat --then I had to use whole thing as desk and its hidden in this mess:

Hey ciaranie

Are you just driving on GT5 or are you on PC also. Nice setup by the way.

I'm going redesign my screen in the next couple of days to look more like this. I'll post pic's when finished. It should look great in 3D till the Oculus rift is out.

That looks brillant. Rfactor is one of the best sims. I've nothing that good. GT5, Richard Burns Rally and Rfactor's what I have. My pc's graphic card needs a upgrade so mostly play GT5 but Richard Burns Rally is the most realistic in my opinion.

Look forward to seeing your pics when finished.

That looks excellent, if it's around the $300 mark it would be great. I've been waiting for one of these for decades! I don't understand why they haven't come back into fashion quicker.

I've been seriously thinking about a rig but the cost was just way to high. I've already spent a lot on my PC and a big projector but I couldn't sacrifice any of that stuff to make the rig. I was looking at the prospect of buying a lot of new hardware to make the rig. The Oculus opens up a whole load of new possibilities.

Yea i'll be selling the projector and getting a monitor and rift. We'll find out in a few weeks if it's as good as i hope it is.
