Since I gave my granddaughter my old Macbook Air, 4yo grandson now also has an old MBA of his own, handed down from her. We got him a suitably tiny optical mouse for it, and he requested a wooden mouse pad like I had made for his sister. Hers was Minecraft-themed, but he wanted his to have a “druck.”
lol love the Druck. Thats what they say at that age,
Not my youngest. He passionately loved trucks, but substituted “f” for “tr,” which got a little embarrassing at times. It’s hard to explain to shocked passers-by that your toddler is NOT cursing repeatedly at the top of his lungs, but actually celebrating a sighting of one of his favorite things.
lol my nephew has trouble with “sp” and makes a F sound. So of course my dad and my brothers thought it was great when they told him to say “Spock” (from Star Trek)
I just figured that a druk was just able to float as well,
Very, very fine engraving! I’d be afraid to ruin it with repeated musings.
Lol I miss that age with children. Happy New Year to you and your family.
That turned out great! He will enjoy it for sure!
Nah, I can always whip out another one.
I meant to say “mousings” but the darn autocorrect changed it and I didn’t notice.
Wow, the quality of that engrave is fantastic. I need to experiment more with that. Most of mine come out ver muddy. Or REAALLY simple.
If you use dot that is what you can get. If you use vary power with a design like that it will come out looking very muddy
That is awesome!!
How does the engraving hold up to mouse traffic? Whenever I do engraving the engraved surface becomes fragile and the high points of the engraved surface chip off etc. I’m probably engraving too deeply??
Maybe? I dunno – the one I did for my Granddaughter has survived several years of mouse use along with enduring the general daily abuse that goes with being owned by a child, and it still looks great. This one is doing fine so far, too. I think I did the first one in draftboard – this one was done in Baltic birch. Both were topped with several coats of spray lacquer.
