A tented monoblock case of Churn, a handwired split by Luke Schutt.
Published January 7, 2024
Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Luke Schutt aka ihihbs shared the case STL of his Churn, a handwired monoblock split with some fixed tenting. 40% and 60% variants available, walking in the footsteps of the Chrumm and ScottoErgo.

This started out from a set of designs I was churning through, thus the name. Waffling between having more splay and column stagger or tented ortho the vision for this board became clearer after ScottoErgo and Chrumm – Luke.

The STL files provided are split in half to be printed vertically.

Since the OpenSCAD file is included in the repo, tweaking the parameters (splay, stagger, size) are possible too.


  • 38-65 keys (5x3+4 thumb keys, plus extra outer columns)
  • tented unibody case
  • handwired

Luke's build uses Gateron low-profile switches, a nice!nano as controller, a 420mAh battery, plus wire and other components he had on hand.
