    What does everybody think about these? I posted pics with some things that seem to be the other popular items to use for this purpose to kind of give you an idea of their size and shape:





    Any input?

    They have a slight taper from top surface to bottom surface, but not from front side facing to rear side. Kind of a 3D trapezoid.

    The clear thing is a furniture bumper (rubber foot), they come in differnet sizes, but this is the only one I had here for reference.

    Yep resin. Thanks!

    I have heard others use computer keyboard keys and use bondo to make the top surface smooth...

    They were originaly made from keys from a "adding machine" not a computer key board. We had a old one at my work that "disappeared" and the keys turned up at my house. IMO there spot on. If some one know different, please say so. And they do look very close to the ones you've made Drokkul

    Thanks! That was the look I was trying to capture. The hardest part was getting them symmetrical. It's funny I should worry about that when no one that worked on the movies did!
