Ooohwee! I'm undecided on if I wanna go with a Boardwalk, a Lumberjack or just a Solder BM60ec, and this is making me lean towards the BW... I've been pouring over the big Imgur Layout list for it, and I was wondering if you have any shots of this board with any of the other layouts available? And how are you liking the feel/sound of the BBox with this PCB? Especially as I haven't used an Ortho yet, so I'm kinda nervous the transition wont be my thing.

Hey! Heres the only other layout I made the other day. Tbh, im getting rid of it because I didn't like the layout. You absolutely need an Ergo layout to get the most out of this PCB or if you can settle for 1.5u blanks, you'll need those too. The many layouts are nice, but a tough Ortho board to use. I'd look into getting a Planck either through hole kit if you like to solder or the one available on Drop. About the same price and much easier to resell if it's not your thing. As for the case, not much to write home about, it matches the keycaps so well, ill be building a DZ60 in here soon, but I got it during the GB for $20, so worth it for me.

Okay solid, thanks a ton for this. And very interesting, so first off by going full ergo with the boardwalk, do you mean using a vertical center column section, ortho alphanum, 1.5u side mods? If so I'd definitely most likely go that route anyway, in some form or another. I think a version of that layout & keep the arrow cluster would be perfect. Maybe work in some kinda tsangan style bar section if possible. I definitely prefer a solder board, so I'm good there & might have some extra millmaxes by then anyhow if I want to stick to certain aspects of a layout. I honestly only grabbed the Bbox as I've been pissed about missing the atomic purple version when I joined KAT Cyberspace, and I really just bought it on impulse with no real plan for it yet, other than a couple keysets. I have the Camo D60lite coming eventually, and dont really need another 65% - so this definitely has me leaning towards some kinda hybrid 'split'-ergo situation with the boardwalk to mix it up. I really love the open components look of the Lumberjack and can get a pcb for one right now, but I think I'd rather have the center section of keys. Im drooling over both of your builds with the board though.
