Squeezebox Keyboard

Squeezebox keyboard by focusaurus. With customizable column offset and practically two home rows.

This split keyboard has some nice features, e.g. staggered linear columns with customizable offsets.

Additionally, the very tight spacing of the keys in the middle and bottom rows allows chording without finger repositioning.
