Hi everyone, this is the second project from Tea House. We would call it the classic inspired, modern full size with a little bit of creative twist.

The entire board is dedicated to Tea House, and where it is from. The most prominent part you will find is the Skyline of Shenzhen
(Dare I say the capital of Custom Keyboard Manufacturing and my hometown), where Tea House is founded and manufactured. Enough of the sentimental part let’s dive into the detail of the board!


Components Overlook

Basic Information:
Layout: 103 WKL Full Size
Mounting: Top Mount with two mounting methods, for different feel
Typing Angle: 10 degrees
Front Height: 14.0mm
Top Piece: 6063 Aluminum
Inner Badge: White Copper
PCB: Solder
PCB Spec: 1.2mm
Internal Badge: Polished White Copper
Bottom Piece: 6063 Aluminum
Weight: Brass/Polished White Copper
Weight: 6.6 Pounds/3.3 Kg

Sales Format: In stock on Keyspensory, shipped from CN by express carriers

Keyspensory DC: https://discord.gg/GE89KjMGkm

Units: 30≈
Price: 450 USD for the Standard Brass Edition, 590 USD for the Polished White Copper, + Shipping
Sales Date: TBD
Review Streams:

Lightning Keyboard TBA
Taeha Types 11/16



A bit of sidenote for White Copper as material
We have tested this firsthand on the Ayleen Gin Edition, this turns out to be one of the more interesting materials that we have ever used.
Right after the polish, White Copper will be just a regular silver mirror shine, but in times, it will slowly oxidize into this really champaign gold luster.


(Silver with White Copper)

The Copper Side Weight
This is something that we implement to achieve one goal: You can choose either Type C on the left, or Type C on the right. We all have different setups,
and some of you may want to show off your super nice cable right next to the keeb. Plus the copper brings in a bit more texture and flare!


Solder PCB



Supported Layout
*Native Plate (bikini half plate) will not support 10U space bar, needs a custom plate




Just going to put this upfront, I know somebody is going to ask why this weirdly shaped and bordering “extreme” plate design.
Our logic is quite simple, since we are not offering Hotswap PCB, we do not want you to desolder 100 switches to make one adjustment to one stab.
With this particular design, you can really just desolder that one switch and be done with it.

What you will get with Bina
Colorway      TOP           Bottom                External Weight               Plates
  Silver        Silver            Silver            Brass/White Copper        Black Bikini Half Plate
   OG        Champaign      Champaign            Brass/White Copper        Black Bikini Half Plate

Interested.

ISO WKL layout

No engravings if possible... just a flat surface.

About the typing experience... I like GON keyboards, I use the softest rubber "pins". Not sure how this keyboard compares to that? Thanks.

we have tested the no engraving design, it is just so flat with such a large surface. Haven't tried the board you mentioned before, but this softer mounting point offer a pretty flexy typing experience

Thanks! I think you'll sell the 30 units with no problem. Best of luck with the IC and the eventual GB!

All my 100% keyboards have no engraving, and I don't find them flat.
Anyway... add 4 keycaps then?

unlikely, since this is a borad that is really designed to fit a full set of og cherry doubleshot or pbt. so adding the extra 4 won't do it.

Very nice. Full sizes are always nice to see.

Love a lot of the designs features here, that cooper back with the flippable usb port is really cool.

Could we just see a photo of the plate, as it just makes it easier to see all the mounting points.

I don't know why, but as soon as this post was published, it received a lot of positive feedback from inactive accounts, and the timing of these replies is very close to the posting time. And look what I found: some accounts only reply to posts about this studio's IC. What kind of idiot lacking confidence in their own product would spend money to hire 'sockpuppets' to artificially boost positive reviews for their product?

I don't know why my friends’ response is pissing you so off? Maybe it is because of the fact that you don't have any? Don't be so jealous, you will eventually find some if you are not such a "fun" factor in a party. And Btw getting an account on GH is free, if I really want to boost it, I would just do it myself, that is a FREE tip for you! You are welcome! And on a more serious note, GH actually do take care of spaming quite well, so you can relax now! Our products will speak for themselves!

I'm a simple man, I see a WKL Full Size, I subscribe to the thread and keep both eyes open.

The IC mentions there will be around 30 units, will that be a initial release?, or it's the total amount of boards ever made?; and lastly, I understand the full plate will be available as an add-on, right?. Thanks a lot in advance!

Lots I love here, but I am curious about something...

If you don't mind me asking, what's the deal with a PCB that supports WK but a top case that does not? Will there be a WK version offered as well, or is this strictly a WKL board?
