Totally ripped this idea off of Ryan, quick and easy little projects, tried different designs and did an inlay in some, had some others but gave them away before I took some pics. All done from pallet wood, purple heart, walnut and I think mahogany or maybe teak (really hard and dense wood)?, put rubber feet to keep it from sliding around on a desk. Last pick I put in some colored epoxy to fill in where I messed up the inlay and the inlay itself broke apart, came ok pretty cool.

I had not seen Ryan’s until just now. That is a pretty cool idea. They look great.

They look great, how well do they work and what did you use to finish them?

David, I used spray poly on them and lacquer on the purple heart, they work great with the optical mouse, haven’t used one with a roller ball.
