Can anyone recommend me a good oil to apply the surface of the wrist rest?
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.
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?
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.
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.
its available again in case you miss you :P
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.
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?
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!
