Keyboard of the Month - February - Nominations
« on: Sat, 25 February 2017, 02:27:08 »
So I have no idea why I thought there were 31 days in February... I'm still late with this even if there were! But anyway.

Here is the nomination thread for February's Keyboard of the Month competition!


Last month's winner was Adamski's project cosmos



This nomination thread will still be up for 14 days, maybe slightly less. Please remember that the board must have been posted somewhere else on this forum by it's original owner in the month of February.

Happy hunting!
Keyboard of the Month - April - Vote!

Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Okay, so I am a little sad about the amount of nominations this month, so I thought I would do some of my own detective work.

My first nomination will be mrboovn's ENVXK with DCS Valentine



More photos can be found on mrboovn's flickr here

Second is Sifo's GH60 with Leopold Navy blanks and GON sky blue plate

I'm not active enough to see everything that passes through, but I scrolled through a couple threads and picked a few out.

1st is tkpresents' Octagon V2 with 65g vintage MX blacks. Post here




2nd is Pemdas' simple Orion V2 with a few clacks. Post here.




Last is my favorite of February, pr0ximity's OTD 356mini with his custom polycarbonate plate. Not keen on the caps or switch choice, but I commend the custom plate for the 356mini. His work towards "356 Mini - The Lost Manual" is also notable.







+1 towards bunnylake's Fjell.

+1 from me too.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Just an FYI, those were just trash Reds for a fitment test :)

Just finished assembling it not 10 minutes ago with the original tuned vintage Blacks.

Caps are still the same though :P



Thanks for the nomination! Hopefully I'll have some better pics soon.
