Music Keyboard Raiser
When you buy a Roland, Casio, or other make of electronic keyboard, you will often get a stand as well. If you can't sit, however, a stand isn't that helpful because, unless you're extremely short, you'll find that most stands are going to give you neck and back strain—virtually forcing you into bad postures.

This was a problem for me, personally, but I found that a few scrap boards that weren't busy doing anything better were all it took to solve the problem.

I cut a piece of ¼-inch plywood 37 inches by 18 inches, sawed two 2-by-4 pieces 36 inches long and two more 14 inches long, and found some 2-by-2s and sawed four 22 ¾-inch legs. Vary this according to your height and the height of the stand, remembering that looking down somewhat isn't stressful but looking down sharply is.

I used countersunk 3-inch wood screws quite liberally—one wants stability when one has an expensive synthesizer to consider. I screwed together the top framework before I screwed on the legs. (Hint: screw the legs on from both directions for extra strength but don't drill or screw into your own screws.)

Then I screwed down the top, which required smaller and thinner screws. Small nails would have sufficed, in retrospect. The top overhangs the frame boards by half an inch in all directions.
