Dream builds?

Hey guys! I am pretty new to the scene and currently enjoying my first kb (Tofu65% silver + Kailh creams + ePBT gray). I’m waiting on adding one to my collection using a black grand piano as my theme:

Sneakbox AVA black/gold accents + everglide aqua + GMK Maestro.

Please share your dream build with a theme in mind!

Welcome doomed mortal.

I’ve got a few. Only pictures can describe.

These last three harvest alps mount caps from some old Toshiba laptops I’ve collected. They’ve got great thick double shot caps.

I think your ISO Enter is a spy

LOL! Yup, KLE-render really didn’t know what to do with my compact ISO Enter

Honestly, probably some kind of ergo layout Topre board. I don’t know what in specific yet. I have the katana60 build parts coming this week or next week, so I will know then whether or not I like that layout, or if I would want to go with something else. Either way, I really dislike the default row stagger.

This, but as long as it’s better than the utron layout

I would love to see a Tex release a keyboard similar to the Shinobi, with a metal case, and cherry double shot PBT keycpas, that mirror the old x200 or X220 keyboards that include the standard legends and the sub legends. Specifically I want the number pad legends on the alpha keys, but the medial control sub legends on the arrow keys would also be nice.

At least, the keyset exist !

I know @CosmicKira was really keen on those numpad sub-legends. Perhaps that’s how we should do it next time around…

You would have gotten at least 2 orders out of me, had those been an option. :wink:

Dream Build, huh?

I’d probably go with an Esrille Nisse with Box Whites mounted on an acrylic plate, and swapped slow springs from SPRiT. Technically, that’s already all possible, so I guess for it to be a Dream build, I’d like for it to have a trackpoint as well.

Too bad it’s already an expensive board, combined with the $130 shipping and customs fee.

I dream of the day when custom Topre PCBs are a thing. I would really like a Topre board in allice layout!

I’m jumping on the “Topre but weird” boat with my dream being a split 38 key column stagger variable weight Topre board.
