Could you just confirm that the case in your last picture (with the keycaps on) is the "Bubinga" wood ?

Do you have actual pictures of the different wood options? Or know a website where I can find those? :P
Second question; you mention different weights, what's the weight difference between the different kinds of wood?

I might use it as a keyboard to take to work so prefer something lighter :)

From memory, the pok3r plate is a bit wider than standard. Do some searching around the kbdfans 60% aluminium case thread and you should find more details - they're a bit hazy for me.

Unfortunately, I don't have many of the PCBs mentioned in the comments section. But the general rule of thumb is that so long your 60% PCB has the same 6 screw's positions and even better so if it fits into a normal standard 60% case. It will be compatible.

The screw's positions of the wood case are as followed:

196537-0

PCB and plate photo found on google:

196539-1

196541-2

About the wood options, I've already updated at ic and order link, you can find it here if you want.

Different wood would have different weight. Bubinga is the heaviest of the 6. if you prefer a lighter case, we would suggest Maple or Ash.

Sorry to tell you our current case is in black walnut wood, but not Bubinga. We've shot the photo under the sun, so it may be brighter than the sample.

For an idea of Bulbinga wood, please see the one below:

Yay! Just joined the GB. Black Walnut for me. OP, if there is ever a R2, I might go for a light color, such as Maple.

Thanks a lot!

I've sorted out an album for the wood case, inside you'll find the case being shot from multiple angles, including the back with the Logo on. Please see the link below,

http://imgur.com/a/AjQNyzh

While I don't have a case with the logo engraved inside, please expect it to be relatively smaller than the logo at the back, positioning at the left side within the case.

Oh, I just thought of one more thing: feet.

Any chance of getting some recessed circles for rubber bumpons/feet so that the case doesn't slide around (or have the bottom get scratched up)?

Sorry guys. It's been really busy this week, so we can’t reply in time.

About the feet, we haven't include a recessed area on the case for feet, however we do include removable mounting in the order. We decided we didn't want to fix an area for mounting, so you are free to paste and adjust it wherever you like on the wood case.

Thanks again!

Hi, sorry again I don't have a DZ60 in hand, our wood case is a very standard 60% case, the rule of thumb is if it has the same screw areas as the one I marked (please refer to reply #15) it should fit. Also, if your pcb fits with standard sizes 60% cases such as 5 degrees, yes it would fit well on the wood case.

And nope we don't have an MOQ.

I can sympathize about being intimidated by assembling a board from scratch for the first time. 
That's why I'm probably going with a fully assembled board like this one, for this particular case.

That's actually really handy. YD60BLE is one of the Bluetooth PCBs I really appreciate, it's much more stable and works so smoothly.

Bigger would only be trouble. 

 I have 3 other wood cases at the moment.  All of them have warped over time as they age.  Unless they’ve cut these close to final form and let them sit for a year or so, they will probably also warp in time.  Imagine how bad that would turn out with a tkl or full-size board.

I just use various size feet/pads on the bottom to accommodate for warped cases to keep them from wobbling while typing.

Sorry for the lack of updates.
The sum has been transferred to the factory and production has begun. Our correspondent in the factory has informed us that there has been some delays earlier due to annual government inspection.
We are aiming to receive all woodcases in September. We will update if we received any news and once we received the boards.
Thanks all.

There should be some extras, we'll make a small announcement in ig and GH so please do stay tuned!
We would love to have a r2 for the wood case, but for the moment we would like to focus on completing r1 first.

Just got my YD60BLE PCB with Silent Gateron Blacks from KBDFans today.  This is what I plan to put in my Createboard.
Just need to wait for that and the GMK Necro keycaps to arrive now!

EDIT: Geez, why did I pick a layout that uses a 2.00 shift key?  Damn, thats not common.  Yarg.

I feel your pain, out of curiosity I once brought a plate that requires 2u shift and split backspace. It took me quite sometime to find the suitable caps...

Thanks for the update!

Will there be a round 2 or extras available?

Thanks for the update!

I'm interested too

KMK Labs.

Hey Darknight00z and Kerasan, thanks for the messages and sorry for the late reply!
There should be some extras, we'll make a small announcement in ig and GH so please do stay tuned!
We would love to have a r2 for the wood case, but for the moment we would like to focus on completing r1 first.

Oh, interesting! I hope you have some extra Ash cases :)

If anyone wants to sell their Ash case, I'll be willing to take your spot :D

Hey guys, we're sorry to tell you some bad news.
With Typhoon Mangkhut approaching, we are advised not to head over to the warehouse until it passed, so QC will have to wait for the moment.
The place is watertight so please don't worry about the conditions of the cases. They are kept safe ;)
We did a preliminary check on the cases last week, some of the cases will need to be returned to the factory for minor defects. But for others, we will start posting them out once full QC is done.

Hey guys, updates again, we've just finished QC. The first batch is now scheduled to be shipped this week. However we will also be sending some back to the factory due to minor faults, eg.  scratches, requiring further polishing as such.

We wanted to make sure the case is of quality, so we've spend some time speaking with the factory and agreed on the work that needs to be done.

Tracking no. will be sent out to your email once the package is sent. So please do check your emails!

Some updates on delivery and the cases:

Most of the cases that require further polishing are Black Walnut cases.These are now back in factory and work has begun on them, so there will be small delays for some black walnut buyers. Most of the cases that were sent out now are Bubinga cases.

We will contunue sending out your cases and tracking numbers these few days. Some of you in Asia should receive your cases soon.

Apologies again we are not sending the cases out fast enough, we are a two people team but we will try to sort out the logistics as quickly as possible.

Hi everyone! Some progress updates, all tracking no. for the first batch has been sent out! The factory will be sending the second batch to us this coming Saturday, so our plans were to send out the rest in this month.

Please be sure to check your email and the delivery status. We’ve noticed some are held in custom due to tax, please remember to pick them up!

Thanks.

Does the rainy weather affect the cases too? If it's that wet wood warping might be an issue.

We've picked up almost all of the wooden cases, save for a few as there's only 2 of us and a lack of storing space...sorry for that. We will be picking the odd few cases left soon.

All of the wooden cases we picked up will be sent out tomorrow, please look out for the emails! Hope these will all arrive before X'mas! Happy holidays everyone!

We will be taking Saturday and Sunday off this week, as we'll be expecting a new member -aka a ball of fur joining our team soon! We'll update over ig again!

Looks funky and chunky, my dude.  I have 2 of them coming eventually.  I'm planning to put my MT3 Elvin set on one of them.  The tolerances look really good for an after market tray mount case.  Any issues with rubbing keycaps around the edges?
I have problems with the space bar hitting the case

Hmmm.  Have you found a workaround for it?
Not yet. I tried many different angles of screwing the PCB into the case but it didn't work.

Well I suppose the good news is that it's wood so you can sand it.  But that would suck.  Did you contact them about getting a new one?

The strange thing is that I didn't encounter that problem the first few days of using it

Nah, that's just the nature of wood.  It changes shape for a long time.  If you watch those dudes who turn wood on Youtube, they often let wood sit for years before using it.  And then they still have issues with the wood swelling/shrinking/cracking

Yeah, wood movement is a big thing when constructing furniture like tables.
I've even encountered it in the Woodkeys BigSwitch kit.  When it arrived in the summer, the dowel pegs were too tight and I couldn't get them in.  I sanded them to make them fit, and I just noticed yesterday that they're so lose now the case won't stay closed with friction. 
But I live in a area with high humidity in the summer and very low humidity in the winter, so I can expect a lot of movement over a years time.

I got my walnut and ash cases today.  They look very nice.  Just like the photo in the original post. 

Just a word of caution about PCB compatibility.  The standoffs used in the case are wooden with a brass receptacle in the middle.  You will need to be careful out since the radius of the wooden part is fairly large.  Because of this, some PCBs might not work without a few adjustments. There are some small nylon washers included with the board.  I assume they anticipated interference with some PCBs.  However, the washers don't seem to be thick enough to alleviate the issues on the Nerd PCB.

Tested PCBs that work without adjustment:

Sprit FaceW
Zeal 60
Satan 60
GH60 Rev C

PCBs with issues:
Pok3r (no room for the dip switch)  You could probably carve out space or and/or add washers to the standoffs to make it work
Nerd 60. A few of the standoffs come into contact with the diodes on the back.  You could dremel a lot of the standoff away and it would work fine.

I'll try to post a few photos later.  Office in disarray from trying things out and I have to get it picked up first :)

They sound virtually the same.  Case has some really nice acoustics, too.  Fairly deep because of the way the caps are recessed.

That maple looks really nice. Almost wish I had gone for that one instead of the walnut.

We're really thrilled to hear positive feedback of the wood case, your opinions is an encouragement for us, as well as very important info for us to improve in future models (maybe r2?)

If you have any using problem, please feel free to contact us on IG or email.

As we are both working full time, we can only ship on Saturday. Progress has not been ideal as we're not sending out cases fast enough, by now about 80% of the shipments has been sent.

We are scheduling to send out padauk cases this Saturday, we will send an email notification after the cases has been sent out.

Thanks for the wait again guys!

Got my case today. Looks good, but had some minor dents and imperfections. Still happy with it but the visible mark/dent on the front of the case should have been spotted in the quality control.

But this is still gonna be a kick ass build. And I am gonna be one of a very few in Finland typing junk on the internet on this nice piece of wood AFTER christmas. I got my DZ60, brassplate, 67g zealios, some GMK stabs, this case and now just waiting for massdrop to ship my canvas keycaps.

This is gonna be my second or third end game.

Oh, and if there will be a round 2 count me in on a maple case...

So, I got my cases several weeks back.  I did a test fit and everything was fine.  Went to build a new board with these cases today.  Now, neither of them work out.  The Walnut won't fit a plate.  I thought I would just try to go plateless, but the keycaps rub really badly on the edges.  Same story with the ash.  The ash has shrunk a bit less, but every type of keycap I've tried rubs on the edge.  I don't happen to have a router or I would try to fix it. 

Any possible way to get this fixed or issue a refund?

That sounds bad. Got my canvas keycaps today and gonna start my build with the walnut soon. Doesn’t look too promising after reading about your cases.

I mean, they both fit fine a month ago or so.  Not so fine now though :(

Maybe it's time for me to pick up some woodworking tools :)  wonder how much a cheap router is.

I haven't gotten mine yet but I know it's coming soon. There was a problem with the wood I chose, so I'm getting an alternate choice instead. Looking forward to seeing it in person at any rate.

That is very strange, I wonder what sort of treatment has the wood gone through. Don't even think shrinkage happens on kbdfans wood case - maybe under extreme temperatures?

Yes I have a KBDfans wood case.  It is slightly tighter on the plate than when I got it two years ago, but this is far worse.
