Show off your Non GMMK PRO Builds

Love seeing all the gmmk pro builds and how creative everyone is. Don’t currently have a gmmk pro cuz I’m not a fan of the 75% layout but I love looking at keyboards so I’d love to see what other keyboard everyone else has built!

SwitchCouture Alice, Matte Black. Lubed and filmed KTT Roses, GMK Henessey.


KBD75, Gateron Robin, lubed. MT3 Dasher.

Tofu65, lubed and filmed Gateron Black Ink V2. Awaiting GMK Star for the keycaps, currently has GMK Pulse (picture is Artifact Series Carnival).

Practice75 with stock Kiwis. Artifact Series Carnival.

Iced Rama Kara with lubed NK Creams. GMK Laser keycaps.

I’ve also built a few other Tofu65s for friends / family that I don’t have pictures of, and then I’ve built a few other KBDFans boards for people. I just find building keyboards relaxing.

I’m currently awaiting a Mode65 that should be shipping in December. Planning to put Turquoise Tealios (63.5g) that I lubed in that build along with either GMK Sparta or GMK Norse, but I do have a set of the Aluvia keycaps coming so maybe I’ll use that.

My GMMK, I replaced the stock foam with 1mm thick neoprene
modded the stabilizers /w band aid mod
Gateron Black switches (L/F)
Glorious Mechanical Keyboard Keycaps

This was my first build and I had a lot of fun doing it. I think it took me around 6 months to research, order parts, mod, and assemble everything. Im currently putting together a list to build my wife one as well, and save a few things for when I build my GMMK PRO.

Just a picture of my keyboard. All I did was change the keycaps on a White Ice GMMK.

You 3D printed that case, then did all the internal wiring yourself, AND the numpad detaches?

yep exactly! then compiled the layouts and firmwares for each and flashed to a teensy board. each has its own usb cable. i can take more pictures later today
