Keyboard time

I built my first keyboard! It’s an Atreus keyboard, it is stained with colonial walnut and has a poly coat, with keycaps from a commodore64 (dead one), and cherry mx green switches (really loud ones that sound like a typewriter).

So far it’s a little challenging but I’m going to try to stick with it. The parts that I do like most about it is the layout has some keys in different places that actually make typing on it fun.

My Keyboard

I plan on building a couple more retro style keyboards. I would have to say that the best part of building it was getting to teach my daughter how to solder. It brought back memories of learning how to solder with my dad. Probably not the best thing for an 8yr old to be doing hahaha but she was really good at it.
