after almost 8 months I finally decided or rather found the motivation to work on this keyboard again.
I lost everything THKB related when one of my hard drives crashed back then and I didn't have a backup of those files
The layout for my Tiny Hacking Keyboard is based on jdcarpes 40%.

Next step: Designing the case

I've been working on my very first custom keyboard called Tiny Hacking Keyboard and I finally have something to share
The layout is based on jdcarpes 40% except that I replaced the bottom row to get rid of the space stabilizer and to have some more modifier keys.
The keycaps are Signature Plastic PBT DSA.
I'm not sure if I will just handwire the switches or if I will start learning how to and design a PCB for it. I'm also not 100% sure about the case yet. Thats why it is WIP
Layout Layer 1-3 (I still play around with the FN layers)
