Keyboard Pullout Drawer Front Hardware
From the original questioner:
That one looks like one I have tried. It seemed a little snug and had to be installed just right for it to work. Even then it was not as good as I was hoping for. Iíll keep looking.
From contributor B:
I have been using Blum Compact 38N hinges on the bottom of a drawer front so it will drop down and then build a thin drawer with Accuride 3832 drawer guides to slide out over the front. It works pretty nice.

From contributor C:
I built a computer desk, more like a piece of furniture, with turned legs with about a 4-1/2" apron. I made a keyboard tray from plywood and installed with K&V keyboard slides to the bottom of desk top. To conceal the keyboard when closed, I installed butler tray hinges on a section of the apron so that it folds down to allow the keyboard tray to slide out. I put two pulls on the front so it looks like a drawer.
From contributor D:
I like to use the mortised nickel plated adjustable flap hinge with a full bread-board bottom as a positive stop for the drop face and then use the "Accuride lock-stop" slides that can be mounted horizontal to the bottom of the pull out tray. The result is a very stable and positive keyboard pull-out.
