I used 1" steel perforated tubing. 2- 5/16" grade 8 bolts to bolt the tubing together and to the 2" steel angle. you will need 3 locking nuts for the 5/16" bolts so they dont loosen up when you pivot it back in forth. put 3 plastic washers between the tubing.
I used 1- 5/16 carriage bolt to mount the tray to the tubing. 
The tray itself is made from 1/2" MDF. I then put some tool box liner on the top to keep the keyboard from sliding around. I will post some up close pics of the finished product.
