A project log for Building a Mechanical Keyboard

A DIY 60% mechanical keyboard based on Cherry MX blue switches

Inspiration to build my mechanical keyboard came from an article from « beastie.lesfurets.com ».

I like the visible micro-controller (a Teensy 2.0) but I’m thinking to use a more traditional layout (without numerical pad).

Components

I ordered almost all parts, including :

DSA key means they can be placed anywhere ; other families (DCS or SA) means keycaps are different according the row, see http://pimpmykeyboard.com/key-cap-family-specs/ for further details.

For the micro-controller, II will reuse a Teensy I already bought.
