A lasercut wooden mousepad by kerf bend

A few month back, I was researching on living hinge technics on wood for our laser cutter. I was specially looking at the use of the kerf bend and found fascinating resources, specially on instructables (1, 2). Beside, it’s obvious usage for bending wood, specially when creating boxes, I decided to use one of those pattern and simply cut it out of a 3mm piece of plywood to make a nice and unique mousepad. 15 minutes of work to prepare my file, 20 minutes of laser cutting, finally glue under it a piece of anti-slip mat and voilà! I know, I should probably add some varnish on top at some stage…
