Very Groovy Wooden Mouse

Recommended Posts

The Bentley of mice. It's made out of wood!


It has a 5 year warranty that can be extended. Made from Rare Exotic woods, including Ebonywood and Sapele. Very eco-friendly and rated for 1 million + clicks.


The mouse cord is made of a flexible material that ca be shaped to work around any of your office components with the ability to hold the shape you set it to.


One of these will only set you back, oh about $996 USD. Each one is custom hand made and can take up to two weeks for construction.

Anyone seen anything similar to these? Maybe for cheaper :D

I would think that the finish would prevent that from happening for some time. The finish is very simliar to that used in billiard (pool) sticks and tobacco pipes. The 5 year warranty would cover it but I doubt it would happen even in 5 years time.


Oh Dexter, not sure where 2 weeks came from, cause it takes months to coat and create the glossy waterproof surface. Once it's properlyed finished though the thing is near bulletproof.


If they didn't use such rare wood it could drop the price by half, but then again that would take away the rare coolness factor.



The production of each mouse requires:

from 3 months to 1 year of material processing (natural final drying);

one day of producing its components with the milling machine;

from 2 to 3 weeks of coating (by natural drying).


The finish is made of linseed oil and carnauba wax.




Linseed oil is a traditional finish for gun stocks. A very fine finish may require months to obtain. Several coats of linseed oil is the traditional protective coating for the raw willow wood of cricket bats. Linseed oil is also often used by billiards or pool cue-makers cue shafts, as a lubricant/protectant for wooden recorders, and used in place of epoxy to seal modern wooden surfboards.



Carnauba wax. It is the finish of choice for most briar tobacco or smoking pipes. It produces a high gloss finish when buffed on to wood. This finish dulls with time rather than flaking off (as is the case with most other finishes used.)


Carnauba wax is often combined with other waxes (principally beeswax) to treat and waterproof many leather products where it provides a high-gloss finish and increases leather's hardness and durability.



Melting point: 82–86 °C (180–187 °F), among the highest of natural waxes.

Relative density is about 0.97

It is among the hardest of natural waxes, being harder than concrete in its pure form.[citation needed]

It is practically insoluble in water, soluble on heating in ethyl acetate and in xylene, practically insoluble in ethyl alcohol.
