Gaming on a chair - Any recommendations for a keyboard table?

So I've just finished my first build after a 4 year leave from PC gaming and I'm running my PC in to my 47" HDR 4k TV as I don't have a monitor.

I have a bean bag chair thing that I sit on when I play my PS4 Pro but it doesn't work for my PC as I can't use a KB/Mouse on it.

I've seen a few people say they use a small keyboard table?

Any more information or suggestions for one?

@scatteh316: I figured out all you need is a length of wood or something fairly light and flat and you can m/kb to your hearts content whilst in recline.

The keyboard and mouse are rested on the wood which is on your lap.

Works fine for me.

Tip. Blu tack the keyboard down.

[edit] if you see anything dirty in the above post you are childish and need to grow up.

Piece of plywood works real nice.

You need to lay it across your lap and it helps to be level.

Me? I sit on the floor and just put the keyboard and mouse on the coffee table.

@mrbojangles25: Awww, poor mrbojanglesgles25. Lol

OP, I just got a Surface Pro 6 and I intend on trying it out on my wooden tray table. Will let you know when my keyboard arrives.

So my tray table works great. Maybe you ought to try one of those. There is no lip on my tray table, so it's more like a small table.
