Cheap, fast, solid, and small.

1/8” hardboard and a piece of gorilla (duct) tape.

My neck hurt from always staring down at my computer on the desk so a quick google search yielded some options and I saw one like this but made of cardboard. I made a cardboard template and then the hardboard version.

It has a slight forward slant to make using the built-in keyboard and trackpad a bit easier when you need. But if you’re doing this for ergonomics you’ll fix one issue only to gain another if you don’t have a keyboard and mouse on your desk. Otherwise your shoulders and arms will pay having to reach up to use the built-in hardware.

‘nuff said. Watch video for dimensions.

Thanks for looking, hope it helps someone else too!
