I think the best idea would be to just create a poll on the port placement. Definitely looks interesting though, so I will also be keeping an eye out for this board.

you need a PCB with daughterboard. and the daughterboard must have the right center-to-center distance between screws.
i don't think there is a compatible PCB other than the wilba graphite.
let me know if i misunderstood something.

Make it seamless, charge whatever you want and I'll buy it.

i've never thought about that. i like the idea. definitely possible.
this increase the amount of brass that have to be milled.
but may it worth a try.

let me work on it

Seconding this, I would also love a seamless solid brass board. I also like the idea of offering a raw finish, gives people the option to either patina it or mirror polish if they want to.

raw finish is confirmed. it will also have a lower price.  :thumb:

the seamless design impact the design and the price very hard.
the upper part would be made by a 30mm thick brass block.
this keyboard will be proposed in a buy group with the seam.

i promise that in the first quarter of 2022 i'll be back with a new version without seam. :thumb:
if seamless design is a must have for you, i'm sorry but you have to wait few months more.
i'm already working on it while i'm waiting for samples of this one.
