Well done I hope Corsair looks at this thread . As above has said get a cushion filled with polystyrene ball to go underneath that way it will keep it level

Think I will! However, i'm going to try upholstering it myself, rather than hunt for something the right size.

I'm also going to add a groove in the base of the keyboard cut out, so I can angle the keyboard with it's included feet and still have it nice and secure.

You should be able to get the polystyrene balls from a craft/hobby shop or alternatively have some fun and break up packing blocks.

I've got some old bean bags somewhere that I can cannibalise. I'm honestly thinking about using a velvet for the cushion though. We all need a bit of luxury in our lives
