This silly thing is HEAVY!  And that's without the plates.  With the plates this thing is ridiculous.

Matte black is really nice.  I'm curious to see how fast it picks up hand oils though.

Any information behind this board? I'm curious, this build looks awesome and needs more pictures.

Total noob here. Those switches have such long fixing pins on them. Those are pcb mount switches right?

The ones in the bucket?  Hand inserted diodes.

Yea the ones in the bucket. Errr.. a little confused now but does that mean those are plate mounted switches and you had diodes inserted instead of soldering the diodes separately onto the pcb?

They are PCB mount and I put the diodes inside the switches.

I see, seeing there is a plate could you have used plate mounted switches?

Could have, yes.  The PCB has the proper holes and there's nothing quite like the experience of the solidity of a plate+PCB mount build.  Being a 6+lb KB it'll be rather interesting.

Cool! Is it supposed to blink when you depress a key? I think that would be annoying, but the fade effect is certainly cool.
