View Full Discussion I received mine awhile ago, and I gotta say, its beautiful. I can't post a review as the status still hasn't updated to delivered for some time, so I'm posting my thoughts here. There are a couple minor imperfections but nothing I would consider a fault, or justification for a lower price.
Some people expressed concerns about it separating, and there's no way this thing is coming apart. It's solid as a brick.
I do have some constructive feedback about the design now that I've been using it, and I hope that feedback is taken into consideration if you repro these in the future.
There will always be minute differences between the product image and the finished product with handcrafted items. Even so, I was a bit let down as the wood has a dull lustre as opposed to the almost tigers-eye like shine shown in the example images. The blue resin is slightly darker as well, but hey - I'd be seriously impressed if you could mix this by hand and get the same color hue and intensity every time. Anyone who has worked with resin knows that any minute difference in your mixtures will noticeably change the color.
I'd give it a solid 8.5/10, and probably a 10 if the edge where my wrist sits was rounded.
- The wrist rest has a hard edge where your hand actually meets your wrist, which can be a bit uncomfortable. Putting a bezel/rounding this edge here could go a long way.
- The angle the wrist rest sits at makes it more flat than angular. Just a few degrees steeper and it would be perfect.
- On the reverse side of the wrist rest, the wood burl has some (natural) pitting, which I would like to have seen filled. I understand when you're producing these things in large batches it's harder to manage all those small imperfections piece by piece - especially when the wait time for a handcrafted item like this is already long to begin with.
- The inclusion of clear adhesive rubber feet was a nice touch, it keeps it from sliding around and they're barely noticeable through the blue resin.
Thanks for your super carefully and detailed comment!
