Inspired by the layout of the Ikki 68, alan0ford's PCB 68 is a plateless design in a case handmade out of plywood.

Second (an final) attempt to build a wooden case around my first PCB – alan0ford.


  • MX, soldered
  • plateless design
  • SuperMini NRF52580 controller (nice!nano compatible)
  • Case: plywood, handmade
  • Keycaps: CRP-X Parallel Worlds
  • Switches: WS Jade POM linear 50g
