This is a little project I wanted to do. I was inspired by the keyboard zen garden
. Total build time was less than half an hour.
This is my first instructable and I welcome feedback! It's very easy to do with an old Saitek Command Pad (it's a programmable macro pad that came with my old keyboard). You can also just cut the numpad section off an old keyboard if you don't have an external pad.
I wanted to make a cubby section in the bottom of the pad, but I liked the way it looked without it. For the time being I'm not making a cubby, however, I included instructions if anyone wants to (it should be really simple).
