Keyboard of the Month - March - Vote
« on: Mon, 06 April 2020, 14:03:18 »
Hello all, hope we are keeping well. Returning to normal service, we have a slightly delayed March Keyboard of the Month poll.

Thanks to richfiles, we do not have three Korean customs for you to choose from, but two KCs and a split board too.


Our nominees are:

LigtningXI's Koala



More shots with some delightful OG Cherry caps can be found here

Ramnes' KMAC LE



More photos of it with another set of lovely Cherry caps can be found here

Songcq's Butterfly



Thread with designs and keymaps to make your very own Butterfly is here!

As always the vote will last for seven days! Good luck!
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Hah, I probably would have to concede to the more detail-focused KMAC or Butterfly, but I appreciate y'all's appreciation for my build! =)

No legends where they would surely be helpful or lots where they aren't really needed...

Also i guess with only 38 keys, it'd be impossible to get keys with the right legends on for all the mapping. Probably easier to just remember the layout.

The consistent look is appealing, I've still never tried a sensible sized board full (JD40 is blank but doesn't get much use)  Should get some and do Colemak properly.

Looks like uniform keycaps so DSA with legends for the third layer would probably be my choice - remembering two layers is enough of a challenge :))
