Ottimo's Salisbury is a nice 35% keyboard with symmetric layout. Built by wayduh.
Published January 16, 2023

Ottimo's (aka subottimale) Salisbury was inspired by marksard's stonehenge30. It has a symmetric layout, but adds an extra row, so 33-35 keys altogether.

You can't see the silk screen in the photo above (wayduh's build), but beside Stonehenge there is also a steak depicted on the PCB:

Salisbury = megaliths + steak. I liked my stonehenge30 but wanted a spacebar. Also...steak – Ottimo.
