How I make them
It starts by selecting the highest quality birch plywood from a sustainable force. Then each piece is cut into 9x9cm squares on the bandsaw. After that, I use a homemade router table to ease over the top edges and create an attractive bevel. Then on a sunny and still day, I fire up the gas and heat up the branding iron and stamp each of them. Finally, they get smoothed over with sand paper and then a number of layers of protective varnish.
Just good old branding irons and lots of heat.
You'll get a full set with anti-scratch pads and a protective varnish finish.
My keyboard palm rests only ship to the UK and Europe, but because plywood is an engineered wood, it can be sent to other destinations.
Why not get a matching keyboard palm rest? They make typing more comfortable on high profile mechanical keyboards.
Every order comes with free SWAG - a random selection of stickers from the OpenFaaS community and our friends.
New faasd logo available!
