  • Looks nice. I'd be interested in seeing some photos with the product reversed, ie, the keys are bare, but the rest is covered in wood, so the keys are flush with the wood. Would be nice to include the adhesive on that part as well in case people would rather use it that way.

  • How did you learn about sandblasting wood to get that effect? I can see this technique being applied in many different applications.

  • Yeah, would love to buy it, too! Please make a serial production of it - don´t mind when the letters disappear sooner or later. I prefer tha haptic experience! Just do it! Thanks!
