I'm interested in a wrest, once you are able to work with hardwood again.

I am, I'm currently working on 3 so it will be a few days before I can accept another

EDIT: I can't do any HARD wood. My saw isn't nice enough to cut it.

That's fine, is there a waiting list and are you only able to do pine or whitewood still?

I can do pine, whitewood or Cedar (cedar is option 3 only). There is no waiting list ATM, you would be #1

Sign me up, I will definitely buy one. I only want option 3 anyway, but the problem is.. I am not to familiar with wood choices and finishes. I'm looking to get a rest that fits a tenkeyless board (Varmilo VB87M) and has a smooth/darker (not too glossy more matte) finish. The plank and cedar wood rests from the previous posts look great, so I wouldn't mind either wood.

Ok, I'll get some pics of the 3 different woods in Option 3.

Plank is a type of keyboard, the rests for those are made of pine. The one that has no finish or poly is made of cedar. I have an ebony stain BUT it is dark, almost completely black.

I'm not positive, but if you get me the length I can make one for sure.

I see. I like the pine better, but I'll wait to see what whitewood looks like. I also want to see what an ebony stain looks like. I forgot to add, I also like the slight curve you put on the plank pieces.

White wood and ebony would look the same as pine. The grain between them is very similar

Most pieces will have a good curve to them, Hwoods  piece is so narrow that the entire piece is an angle instead of having a curve

I sent you a PM earlier with a pic or two in it

The keyboard is named after Max Planck (Planck's constant) whereas plank is for wood. So I guess I ordered planks for plancks.

They came in yesterday and they work nicely. I found however after long use my wrist 'sticking' to it from being a bit humid/sweaty. I'm thinking about lightly sanding to smooth it though is that the right way to approach this?

You may need to give it a few more days to completely cure. If you sand it it will likely lose its gloss unless you have some polishing compound on hand (I use car polish)

Update on Cebu's piece. It's for a Varmillo TKL, the stain is a mixture of English Chestnut and Ebony.

Do note that it's not finished, I still need to wetsand it smooth (the new poly is like water -___- and it runs like crazy ... I am not a fan of it at all)

"Negative" angle is where the front of the keyboard is higher than the back. This is the opposite of where keyboard feet/risers normally come, but - depending on the size of your hands and the details of your setup - is arguably a better posture ergonomically, and is certainly kinder on your wrists. For built-in examples, see the Microsoft 4000 or Sculpt. When people are writing about "tiliting" in addition to "tenting" with regard to their Ergodox, this is what they mean. ("Tenting" is the angle of the sides.)

Actually, all I really want is enough of a slope to counteract the HHKB's slightly agressive forward angle, and make it overall flat.

Failing this, I'll just order a normal wrist rest with no bottom panel. :)

I understand the negative slope, but not sure what type of piece you are wanting (simple piece or piece with bottom plate?). Approximately how tall would the front of the rest be? And how tall for the back (where it touches the keyboard?

The front of the wrist rest would be roughly the same height. Currently, the bottom plate extends out as a flat piece of wood, i.e. a rectangular cross-section. I was suggesting that the bottom plate be glued, planed or cut to a trapezoidal cross-section, so that a keyboard sitting on it would tilt back. Or am I misunderstanding what you mean by front/back? I thought this was simple, but if it's not - or if I'm not making sense - I can sketch something out when I have a second this weekend.

I see what you are saying now. I have no way of cutting a piece of wood like that.

Sorry
