My daughter wanted to knit me a mouse-pad. When I explained that the mouse wouldn’t slide over wool very well, we decided to try making a wooden frame to enclose it.

The result was this, we did a bevel on the acrylic and an undercut bevel on the wood frame. Considering we just did it all on the table-saw it truned out remarkably flush… but alas not quite smooth enough for a mouse.

Its now on the mantle-piece, which makes it more visible.

If she’s still feeling ambitious she could knit you a mouse cozy or a mouse house, and with your obvious mitering skills you could make her a box for her needles in return.
