This stand is made with English Beech and Purple Heart. I know I can use UVA prohibitors in the finish with lacquer and such, can I do anything about that with oil and or wax? I am trying to work out a finishing process that will keep the color the longest and feel wonderful to the touch and make that color bounce! Any ideas?
The last photo shows my logo which has been lasered onto the stand. I use http://www.nwlaserimage.com/ for all of my laser work. Gary is wonderful to work with and knows his industry extremely well! Each wood lasers differently of course due to the hard or softness of it and its componants. Like fir has soft rings and very hard rings . . . the laser wants to burn away the soft really fast and not the hard so the lasering doesn’t work as well on that as the beech shown here.
Here’s my sales pitch used on my etsy store:
_”I designed this for the person who works on a laptop all day. With this beautiful and stylish laptop stand you won’t be looking down, straining your neck. My friends have been experiencing positive results in just days! It’s great in the kitchen . . . watch your favorite show or cook along side your favorite chef . . . the screen is raised up so you can see it with ease. I even use it in bed where it really helps the laptop stay cool because it’s not smothered by covers!
Each piece is finely crafted out of beautiful woods that accent each other and your environment. This Ergonomic Laptop Riser is made out of English Beech and Purple Heart. Its small and lightweight design packs right in your computer bag with your laptop. Every set comes with two pair of “wedges” offering two different heights. This stand weighs in at just 9 0z.
The design also allows air circulation under the computer . . . check out the photos above.
Work healthier and surround yourself with beauty!”
I’d love to hear what you think!
