65% leaf-spring keyboard






This is a 65% keyboard that combines the aesthetic of my first design, the Chiwi60 with elements from the 7V. I normally prefer 75% over 65% but I've noticed that my fiance pushes her 7V forward a bit with her Macbook to make space when she wants to use the latter so I thought that a 65% would suit her better.
