As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve always had an appreciation for fine wood, which is why I’m a big fan of the products from Grovemade, a designer of handcrafted wooden and leather accessories. In March the company introduced newly redesigned trays for Apple’s latest versions of the Magic Keyboard and Trackpad, so now my desktop set-up is complete.
The desk trays — as classy as Grovemade’s other products — are crafted to complement the iconic profile of the Apple accessories, and feature ergonomically designed, slim profiles. They’re available in domestic Eastern Hardrock Maple or Black Walnut and lined with cork to protect your desk while keeping the Magic Keyboards and Trackpads from sliding about. The desk trays join the Monitor Stand ($119) and Mouse Pad ($99) on my desk, and I love the way they look.
The Keyboard Tray retails for $99, the Keyboard Tray 10 Key retails for $119, and the Trackpad Tray retails for $59, so they’re not inexpensive and they are luxury items, not necessities. However, Grovemade’s products are gorgeous works of wood and certainly class up a Mac user’s working environment.
