Best website for close up pads? It seems like there are two types of pads. A mouse pad material and a velvety type top with a hard bottom. What site would you guys recommend, and what type of pad?

You also asked what type... to be honest, personally, I prefer the plush material but the spectrum material is great too. I have no experience with the original material so I can’t speak for that. Pattrick is a very helpful guy and has top notch customer service, so if you have questions...

I went with murphys magic. It was cheap, less than 20 bucks. It was the type with no backing that rolls up. Mats can run from 10 bucks to 400 bucks. Here is one reviewer you might like:

Do you need this to be able to roll up? or can a solid surface suffice?

I'm leaning towards a solid surface.

I need one of these, to fit my practice space - a bureau with ~10" square mirrored tiles inside. I'd like a pad to fit the bureau's drop-leaf so I'm going to visit a few local upholstery/furniture shops to see if I can find some suitable foam and material to cover it with.

Kong... it sounds like you will have a pretty cool practice area when you are done. Good luck finding what you need, I hope it all works out.

Take care,
Bruce

Thanks Bruce. Yes, it's a nice little space. I could do with fixing the mirrored tiles a bit better - they currently stand on wooden blocks into which I've cut angled slots (to tip the mirrors forwards slightly), but they do the job just fine. It does need a better surface though, the leather writing surface isn't ideal.

Cheers.

TCC make one of the best close up mats I've ever seen, beautifully crafted with a solid leather back!

I just looked at these at Abbott's Get Together last weekend. I agree, they are nice. The prices are fair too.
