I can’t quite believe it, but I have made myself a keyboard. And it works! Full post to come at some later point, when I’ve recovered from the shock of it working first time…

@Miraz Thanks! Some beginner's luck too I think!

@odd Thanks, it seems so tiny compared to my Ergodox EZ. It will take me a little while to get used to the layout, (numbers are on a different layer as it lacks the top number row of keys as you can see). I made it mostly as a board that's more suitable for stenography (which I am also learning), but I'm actually liking it a lot for qwerty typing too.

@bsag Very cool! I was looking into something like that, but chickened out and ordered the Planck EZ.

@mjdescy Nothing wrong with that - Ergodox make really nice keyboards and there’s definitely a level of finish you don’t get with a home-made board.
