Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

Fellow redditor keeb_carving aka STRMSKY shared some files of this handwired(?) keyboard: the layout of Sally is derived from that of Alice keyboards, and was designed to meet the author's specific needs.

I couldn't find staggered split keyboard with thumb cluster and B letters on both sides so I decided to make my own – keeb_carving.

The board consists of 59 keys (57 x 1u + 2 x 1.5u), and features pretty uniquely arranged thumb clusters.


Design goals

  • physically split layout
  • numeric row (for gaming)
  • row staggered layout
  • thumb cluster
  • mostly 1u keys
  • letter B is accessible in both right and left half
