My keyboard - Let's Split

This is the first keyboard that I have built myself. I wanted something easy and fairly inexpensive to start with since I didn’t have any previous experience with soldering. I also wanted to try both a ortholinear keyboard and a split layout.

I enjoyed building it and the soldering job turned out pretty good for being a self-taught first timer. And I really liked having a split keyboard, but the ortholinear layout is not for me. :)
