Wow, that's a really nice build. Did you use a router or milling machine to cut those slots?

I'm glad you both like it! :)

Oh no, I own very rudimentary tools, I used a couple of rusty chisels to carve the slots. I must confess that I'm not happy with the quality of the work but I was in a hurry to have a functional (and conformable) keyboard though I was surprised with the overall looking. Maybe in the future I will re-do it with proper tools and more time.

I've added links in my Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-USB-Laptop-Keyboard-Controller/) to this post and to your repo so others can see an excellent example of how to build a keyboard base with basic woodworking tools. You've also done a nice job cleaning up the code.

Thank you so much! :) Without your excellent tutorial and circuit diagram I'd have never been able to even start the project so a big big thank you for you!
