Looks amazing and good price as well  :thumb:

I too would like to know if other designs will be available later as I really want the starry night and aurora designs. I like the Forest Green but unfortunately don't have GMK Camping or any sets that would match the design.

Yes, they will be available in next batches. I've an optional question in the form to vote for next run design.
About the finish, these are clear coated and could be use on daily basis without any problem. Mine was used daily for few months and show no sign of wear.

Hi, I'm a maker of this GB. Behind each of my wrist rest is a story of my life or a thing i love.

Forest Green - I really love the moblie game: Alto's Adventure, It remind me the time I travelled alot, seen many diffrent beautiful natural scene.
Samruai World - Westworld season 2 and moblie game Shadow Fighter inspried me.
Harry Potter - A part of my young age.

The starry night and aurora are my first GB in Vietnam, a long story about that.

The starry night - I created it to save my childhood memory with a litte girl who we lost contact for 20 years

The aurora - I painted it when I listened "Forever - Stratovarious". In this time, I miss my first love so much, we were broke up a few years before.
So, I name my night forest with aurora paint was "Polaris", with meaning: How long, how far, I'm alway think about you.
Like the lyric form Forever "I'm still there, everywhere, I'm the dust in the wind, I'm a star, in the Nothern Sky..."

They are only 10 Polaris Wirst Rest. Then, I promised never ever paint the 11th to express my love for her.

So if you want 2 themes, I'm very pleasant draw the new, same color, same theme. But not look like extractly my old wrist rest.

Thanks.

I had read some questions about can the color keep for a longtime

I use 2 types of top coat for my wirst rest suface

1st coat is Vanish gloss to protect my color and make them brighter

2nd coat is wood finish (polyethylene water base), keep my wrist rest form water, sweat vv...

so, if you don't scratch the surface and weekly clean it with cloth and pure water, your wirst rest will not have any problem with color blur

Thanks.

What is the thickness of the front side, the one that faces the keyboard? I've been looking for at least 25mm but never found one :(

The thickness is: 1.8cm and 4mm with rubber feet 3M, total height: 2.2cm

It's almost up to 2.5cm, but with my design, you still feel comfortable.

I have 4 keeb, 75% layout, aluminum 2.5 and 2 wooden case 3cm, 96%: 2.3cm. My wrist rest are working well with all of them.

Thanks.

Update #1 : the first batch of invoices has been sent. The form is still accepting orders since we're still short of the target of 50 items. Paid Orders are sent for production already.
