[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1445

post #14441 of 36808
Finally finished my homemade wood 60% keyboard case. The case is made of poplar, the feet of redheart, and it's lined with black dyed suede. I'm loving it. I don't know why, but it feels more solid than the stock Poker/Pure case and seems like there's not a ton of flex from the PCB even though it is PCB mounted.

The keyboard is a Pure PCB with what I call Ghost Blacks and Ghost Reds (Blacks and Reds with Clear spings), lubed switches, white and pink 2x3x4mm water clear LEDs, Cherry white on black doubleshot set with a stem modded stepped caps lock, GMK CMYK and White on Purple modifiers, and a Bunnycap.









I need an updated shot with the lights off and the black suede lining, but it's not dark enough here yet.

I'll definitely be entering this one into the keyboard of the month contest.

I've thought about making one for myself. I've done a couple individual caps already, but they can be a PITA and not the easiest to get right.

The first time I pressed on an MX brown, I was shocked the keyboard was mechanical. I really have to swap out the sliders on that board.

To me, even the closest MX switch is still miles apart. Even if there's some similarity in how the mechanism feels typing on browns and rubber domes is just utterly different.

Applied for entry, very proud of my keyboard, I love the aesthetics on it.

It is VERY subtle, only time I can really feel the actuation point is if I am pressing really light and slow, otherwise it feels very similar to reds. I prefer blues and I don't think I would switch to anything else.
