Sick of his old mouse, this guy decided to make his own...from wood

A ‘wood mouse’, if you will.

REDDIT USER DOUBLECLOVERLEAF was sick of his old computer mouse.

Given that it was something he used everyday, he wanted it to look good.

Using a design he uploaded to GrabCad, and the electronics from inside his 20 year old PC mouse, he set about making something new.

Made out of a combination of oak and aluminium, doublecloverleaf used a caliper to make the dimensions of the new mouse fit the electronics of the old one

The mouse took about a week to make and its designer says he’s now thinking of making a full keyboard to match.

One thing’s for sure, it’s certainly prettier than the old one.
