Loved it since I received it. Now, it's warped. It rocks on upper left corner and bottom right corner. Contacted MD. MD said I'm SOL. I'm done with Royal Glam.
Received mine a couple days ago now, and it is looking great. There's no scratches or dents, although it feels a bit rough to touch. That being said, it has noticeably smoothed out with a few days of use. The shipping took as long as three weeks to scandinavia, but that's hardly Massdrop's fault.
Just got mine today. Early! But at a price.... looks like I was sent a B stock.... scratches and dents along the face and a crack along the sid. Not ok.....

So I just got an email saying that my drop went through, though (1) it's not going to get here for another 2 months, and (2) everyone's complaining here about the varnish rubbing off.
Regarding (1), I guess I should've read the fine print more carefully. It's annoying having to wait this long. Regarding (2), Is there anything I can do to overcome any fading/bending?
KENTOSI
Well I got mine early and it’s looks like it’s a B stock or returned unit lol. So take your pick between getting a damaged product or waiting. But idk about the issues usually fading or bending is caused from moisture if you want to you can put some clear coat for wood on it.
Is this really actually happening this time? I joined the last drop for these and after waiting several months for shipping to "start" and another month after that, my order was cancelled.

I'm a little concerned about this.... anyone from Massdrop still reading comments these days?
Pacwageo
Not likely apparently. I can't see why they would offer this again after that. I mean it was a complete failure to fulfill it after several months of waiting. If your producers can't put our product they should be ditched, not brought back for more.
So, Massdrop staff, can you provide any actual meaningful assurance that these will actually ship and will do so in some kind of reasonable amount of time?
Missing size for Whitefox :(
Nosenation
what size is it? i thought 60% would work?
So I got my Rosewood 60% today. The wrist rest itself looks pretty solid in terms of quality and the weight of 60% size is surprisingly heft so I’m guessing it’s real rosewood. But packaging box says ‘Xiao Yi Hongmufang’ MD, I thought this was from Royal Glam? Did they just use a random box to ship them Or is it that, depending on wood selection, we get it from different manufacturer?
TAsU
Could be a parent company or something?
BlueCrowned
I'm not sure but that's what I was thinking too. I see that there is Royal Glam engraved on under side of my old TKL Royal Glam wrist rest but this new 60% rosewood one doesn't have any logo engraving under side. Rubber feet look to be the same ones that they always use though.
When will these be sent out?
I still haven't received mine. Is this normal?

It's getting kind of ridiculous waiting three months plus for a piece of wood to arrive.
xelius
Only thing I've heard was support apologizing and saying they'll give me my money back after I've waiting already 3 months. I haven't had an issue like this before but I don't know if this is normal. Pretty crazy that it's taken this long though. Just emailed support so I'll update once I've heard.
**UPDATE 6/7/2018** Here's support's response: "I currently don't have an update at to exact shipping date. This issue was brought up about 3 hours ago and our logistics team is looking into the delay. You should be getting and email update in the next few business days. If you choose not to wait any longer, I can issue a refund at anytime before shipping ." I guess we wait ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Any update on when these will be shipped?
EDIT: Classic MD. I thought a person is assigned to each drop that could "manage" it? Anyone from MD asking Royal Glam for updates?
I got the ebony and resin wrist rest. I noted elsewhere that I love the artistry of the item. So I am sorry to say mine has warped after less than 6 months. I had asked if anyone knew of a good finish for these, although I am not sure if the finish would affect warping. I live in a super-dry climate, which is probably why this happened. Just a comment that I hope will help somehow.

Thanks for the comment, helping me as I was debating if i wanted it.
Can anyone recommend me a good oil to apply the surface of the wrist rest?
KITTY
Linseed or Danish oil. Its a personal preference and there are people who swear by both. I use mineral oil, but that's because I'm cheap and use it for other things.
Here to add to the comments already about not buying Royal Glam, the products always fall apart after a few months of use!

I got the marble/wood combo a few months ago. The marble split and started chipping within a month. The wood warped and bent. I've heard that the solid wood ones are not finished well and the varnish will rub off after light usage.
Sorry bro.
SarahBeth
I can see why that would be the case with the marble/wood rests. Hopefully it doesn't warp that bad but if it does I'll just throw it through my plainer a couple times lol I was thinking of applying a couple coats of linseed oil after a light sanding to help somewhat with the staining but i don't really mind that too much. Anyway, thanks for the info.
I was on multiple previous drops. The wood's finish is hardly adequate for something that your hands will rest on -- the oil finish disappears within hours use. After a few months, the parts where my palms regularly make contact with the wood turned blackish. The wood also started warping and the wrist rest wobbles. Not good.
I tried this company a few times (4 wrist rests, insane) and each product has this problem. I would advise folks to stay away, unless you don't mind warping wood that will stain with use. (Their ebony&resin wrist rests has the least issues with warping , but the discoloring is really prominent and ugly).
I bought a wrist rest, not a DIY wood varnishing project.
What do you recommend for treating the wood (Black Walnut) or protecting it from moisture?
so 80% is TKL right?
Gooms
Yes
@WoodLab Kevin Hi, could you briefly detail which options are stained and which are natural? I understand that they all come with a clear polyurethane finish, but I'm asking about the raw wood beneath the finish. Thanks!
I'm looking to put danish oil on my walnut rest to fix the discoloration from where my wrist lay on it. I already attached the bottom sticker pads. Anyone know where I can get replacement pads for the bottom? I want to coat the entire board with the oil then with a protective cover. Thanks!

Yes, that is exactly my worry since i am a heavy gamer at times. After reading other comments on here i have decided to use something else that isn't so "troublesome". Thank you for raising up this issue, too.
bsastor
Yep, you're welcome. This wooden wrist rest is high-maintenance eye candy. Looks good, but impractical. And expensive! That's basically describing every item on Massdrop lol
Got mine about a week ago. Just a beautiful wrist rest. Wish I'd gotten one for my 100% keyboard, too! Definitely watching when this one becomes available again.
ryanzb111
its available again in case you miss you :P
Dhairis
Yep I already committed to getting the 100% Black Walnut for my office keyboard, thanks! =)
Got mine about a week ago. Black oak, no warping that others have complained of, stained but apparently the surface is unfinished? I opted to give it a light sanding and ~5 coats of polyurethane finish to give it a more waterproof (and skin-oil-proof) surface.
I might've been okay with $30 for a finished piece, but having to go to the trouble of finishing it myself kinda brings this product into the 'overpriced' category for me. It's a fairly simple product to make for myself, especially since I have a source of nicer cuts of dimensioned lumber. Probably just going to do that next time.

Sometimes I read mass drop reviews to help others. But you sir are a man who does not need help, I'm glad someone else has the sense to treat handled wood properly before use.
any update on whether or not this is going to ship on time?
every time this drops its the same comments about issues with the finish, pitting on the top side, or it not resting flat, etc. Can we actually expect some better QC for this run?
EdTheNerd
Doubt it. I gave it some time and figured after a handful of drops they'd get it sorted - but neither Royal Glam nor Massdrop seem interested in sorting the matter. I count myself lucky mine only came with slight scratches in side but rests flat and seem to be without any other issues.
But honestly, I'd pass on this if I was you. It seems to be a merely a money machine at this point.
I really wanna buy this wrist wrest but I also really need a nice sleeve, urgh. I should probably prioritize sleeve over this. I'll get it next time!
Hey, I ordered the 60% purpleheart but received the black walnut. Any chance of an exchange?
aprogenji
I also ordered the 60% PurpleHeart to match my Miami Dolch coming in a month, they gave me oak and will not send a replacement and will either refund fully if shipped back, or give you a $15 refund with a $5 coupon ... Welp that kinda ruined my plans

Hey, we sent the wrong thing. Oh well. - Royal Glam customer service.

QC today,all QC finished,will be shipped tomorrow.
WoodLab Kevin
Any chance for a custom sizes in the future ? E.g: for tada68, which is 312 mm. None of the default sizes are satisfactory sadly.
arda
I second this .TADA68 and Vortex Race 3?

Does 80% fit RSIII 96?
Does Royal Glam only sell via Massdrop? I was hoping to get something like a two-color wrist rest that was a mix of ebony and something very light, like maple or ash. Tri-color would also be great, but I would prefer that ebony not just be an "accent color." I'm wanting something nice to compliment the K-type I'm impatiently awaiting.
Raithmir
Ahh, thanks! The "Oreo" version would be great. :)
More people willing to pay $40 for a piece of wood... I really need to finish up the few I started and get them listed somewhere I guess, I wasn't going to ask anywhere close to this price.
i'm just wondering if the tri-wood option is ever coming back, because I have been planning on ordering one for a while and am wondering if it's in the cards?
