Go metal when you need a heavy duty keyboard stand.
I was searching for an elegant piano stand and couldn’t find something near to my expectations. So I looked to IKEA and found the GALANT System, which is really heavy built and can be easily expanded.
All you need for a rock solid heavy duty keyboard stand:
I set up the GALANT base according to IKEA instructions.
Then, added another IKEA leg to the top left corner of the table to hold up my monitor.
See more of the GALANT heavy duty keyboard stand on my blog.

#2 ODDVALD keyboard stand
I bought two Oddvald trestles as I was inspired by this hack but both would have been overkill for my little keyboard. I then worked out this way to use a single trestle as the keyboard stand base.
It took 3 or 4 hours though I did it over a few days to let paint and glue dry.
The cost is £10 for the ODDVALD trestle and £7 for table top wood. I owned everything else already. Read more.
#3 LACK piano bench
I bought my wife a digital piano, but didn’t want to buy a piano bench since they tend to be fairly expensive. So I took a trip to IKEA and had a browse of the As-Is section.
I found a pine Lack shelf and some parts from a different discontinued pine shelf, which I decided to chop up and attach to the LACK as legs. Read more.
