Give Your MacBook Pro Some Personality With Wood Keyboard Keys

If you carry your MacBook around with you everywhere like I do, you might be interested in jazzing it up a little with some personality. People don’t seem to dress up their laptops as much as they do their smartphones, but every once in a while, I see a MacBook with some unique stickers on it. Today I’d like to show you a way you can personalize your MacBook that is a little more sophisticated than just slapping some stickers on the front. What you see below is a MacBook Pro with wood keyboard keys.

When I first heard about a laptop with wood keyboard keys, my instant thought was that anything wooden on a computer wouldn’t look right, but after looking at these pictures, I see it makes for a really interesting and unique keyboard.

These wood keyboard keys were created by Raw BKNY. Each one is actually an overlay for your standard MacBook Pro keys. They are designed in such a way that the backlight for each key still shines through. They come in two colors. The dark ones are made from rosewood, and the light ones are made from bamboo. You’ll have to hand-install each wooden key overlay yourself. The entire set sells for $40.

The attention to detail on these wood keyboard keys is impeccable. Even the caps lock key comes with a little cutout so the light can shine through. You can see some of the pictures of the manufacturing process below. The only thing I’m not sure about is how easily these keys would snap into place. They would definitely add some personality and style to any Macbook Pro though. Your laptop would stand out in the sea of Macbooks at the coffee shop for sure.

“They are designed in such a way that the backlight for each key still shines through.”
Can you please provide a source for that particular information? I can’t seem to find it on the product website.
Thanks.

On the product site it specifically says, in the comments by the company, that the light is only seen for the Caps Lock. That the letter keys DO NOT light up and that was one of the sacrifices for the idea.

FYI, I ordered a set of these from RAWBKY and they never arrived. Multiple requests for a refund were also ignored. Beware!
