My switches finally arrived, after their long trip all over the world. :)

The cable is not actually permanent. This keyboard has bluetooth as well, so I can unplug it once it is fully charged.

Using a 60% keyboard is going to take a minute to get used to. Not because of the missing keys, so much but I seem to use the physical edge of the board to figure out where my hands are and the right edge is much closer than I am used to.

@minego this looks absolutely lovely. Is this a DIY? Can you tell me how much it costs? I'm in love with it!

The keyboard itself is this one:

The keycaps are the carbon SA set (from mass drop). They are pricey and probably not available right now, but they put them back on sale every now and again.

You'll also need a set of switches. I used kailh thick click box navy switches, but any cherry compatible switches will work.

@minego thank you!!
I always wanted to have my "own" keyboard. Guess I have a new passion project lol

@maiia This isn't actually the final form for mine. I am going to build a split 60% version of it. Search for quefrency to see the PCB kit I'm going to use.
