How To: Customize Your USB Keyboard with a DIY Illuminated Base with Built-In Phone Stand

Customize Your USB Keyboard with a DIY Illuminated Base with Built-In Phone Stand

I've never really liked to type on a flat or low keyboard. Even the small flip-up stands underneath most keyboards were not good enough for me, as those little legs aren't usually more than 2 or 3 centimeters high. I'd like a minimum of 5 cm, so I decided to make this keyboard base for myself.

Aside from giving me the right height and angle, this DIY keyboard base also features LEDs that light up my monitor, the table, and gives a nice background to my desktop. It's even got a built-in stand for my smartphone, so I can see any emails or calls immediately in front of me while I'm at the computer.

For this keyboard, all I needed were some plastic boards, LEDs, some wood parts, wire, and some nuts and bolts.
