about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.
The keyplate is CNC cut from an aluminum print of the author's photography. He had to build a custom 3D printer to make the frame in one piece.
This design inherits some enhancements from previous builds: backspace on the thumb-row, Q/P mirroring, one-key Ctrl-Alt-Delete, one-key Lock Workstation, media and volume controls, and an enhanced 20-key number pad.
