Well, if these corian boards turn out as well as I expect they will, perhaps we may see 65/75% or TKL Luminas in the future?
I know Id like to see this material explored further in other form factors too.

More prototypes showed up today. These are not 100% polished, as I have a nice buffing wheel on the way, but here they are nevertheless: https://imgur.com/a/pXzHdi0


Concerning lead time, am in talks with Manu's, and working on timings, and will update the thread with a figure this week still.

These are looking spectacular. Is that KAT profile on the one with the white keycaps?

Per the request of some of the people on the discord, I will be making typing videos of these boards, so hopefully that will tide over until they start shipping out.

Hmmm interesting. My plan was to put Creams in mine, but I wasn't digging their sound in that video :\ I was reeeeeally digging the sound of the Holy Zealios though. Might have to be a game time decision for me...

I hope so.  I was super interested in this board, but can't use 60% or smaller--I've tried, it's just not my thing, so I didn't join for this round. 

Looking forward to seeing how the white-black-rose gold combo featured in the OP turns out; it would have been the one I'd have ordered.  Unless the white material stains or yellows easily.

Fortunately, liquids can't penetrate Corian, and unless you're putting Cheetoh dust and lots of other oily food particles on there and letting them sit, you should be totally fine. It's a relatively durable material, and if there is any minor scratching done to the material, you can generally use fine sandpaper and something like a ScotchBrite pad to clear them out.

The Box Whites sound amazing. Guess youd have to know what box whites sound like in other boards to know this sound is a great one. Well done.
