After surgeries on both hands on August 30, My doc removed right cast much earlier though it’s not complete yet.
Right index finer is still healing, but I have 4/5 of hand to use. Plus a bit of help from left hand.
Think for a few days what to do with one hand, I decided to make a mouse pad.
I have old plastic pad on walnut desk, so why don’t I make one with walnut.
I minimized the work so leave all the natural traces as is including the partially broken knot and live edge.
Finished with tung oil. I feel softness of wood from the mouse pad.
And it’s working really well too. As you know, shiny desk top is not that good for optical mouse,
but this one is soft and works very well.
Pad is about 1/4” thick, a bit thicker than plastic one, but I like the feeling a lot.
