Custom ebony 65% keyboard

This is a custom build using a Mexican ebony case, carbon fiber plate and custom PCB. The case is lightly dampened with a thin mat, but the impact of that is probably negligible. This makes it close to the Tada68, but with what I feel is a better bottom row with 1.5-1.5-1-1-1 instead of six 1u caps to the rights of the spacebar.

The switches T1 night from KBDfans, unlubed since there was no spring ping and its a satisfying bump and sound in them. The stabilizers are GMK ones. Keycaps in the picture above are GMK Carbon with an B.O.B. Queen artisan in matching colors.

The case is of course very heavy due to the high density of the Mexican ebony. It also very scratch and dent-resistant. Added feets to the back to give it some angle.
