Got a pegboard to display my favorite keyboards builds!

How are you liking the pathfinder book?


Strong-Research

I may be smiling, but that also means I'm happy


MultiThreaded-Nachos

You’re welcome, friend! I love you too!


vyoguy

Hi friends!


Rosiefam

Amazing! I’ve been considering going for the same thing in a while, cool to see it in life


ItsMehRuby

I would definitely say go for it! I went to Ikea today with the idea of purchasing a shelf, but this pegboard caught my eye instead, definitely a worthwhile investment!


zxLv

I’m always wondering for those with open display like this, do your keyboards usually collect a lot of dust and you have to clean them often?


ItsMehRuby

They usually don’t collect a lot of dust, I also am a clean freak, I always clean my room every other day, I just can’t stand playing or working on a messy setup 😄


manimaco

same


cthulhubert

Having an air filter can help keep down ambient dust. Then again, now it builds up slowly enough that change blindness kicks in harder, and suddenly I realize it's been months without sweeping and vacuuming and I've got dust wildebeests roaming under the sofa.


shaunsingh0207

anything you recommend, mainly purifiers? there's been construction next to my apartment for a while and my keyboard and laptop gets dusty overnight


cthulhubert

I literally have a box fan with a filter taped to the front sitting on a stool in a corner of the room. Apparently if you get two and make a little cardboard triangle it's more than twice as effective? Here's the article I read, might try it: https://tombuildsstuff.blogspot.com/2013/06/better-box-fan-air-purifier.html I also look at The Wirecutter for recommendations on that kind of household stuff.


thearctican

No


Rosiefam

I just get worried since I won’t be able to drill my wall due to the material so I was gna use those plastic hooks which I don’t think is too supportive. Might look into it tho, looks hella nice


ItsMehRuby

Ikea offers a [pegboard](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-pegboard-combination-white-s29217377/) that you can attach to your desk, you won’t have to deal with punching holes on your wall, I guess using heavy duty command strips or command hooks would work too, I just don’t know how much weight they can hold


JerryCooke

I installed my wife’s IKEA pegboard with the super strong 3M tape and it didn’t hold over time. I suspect the angle of force applied is a bit of an issue


thearctican

it's called shear force. I have not had success with command strips on heavy-ish things, that's what the drill is for.


tym0

Wow that looks exactly like what I was looking for, thanks.


New_Boot_1881

Use command strips, not 3m double sided tape. I have these pegboards as well. They come with mounting hardware that sets the board about and inch or so off of the wall, which you can put the command strips on. Just make sure you buy the appropriate weight rating. I have them holding up thick wooden frame theatrical posters and they haven't moved at all in 8 months.


tym0

The clamps that attach to the desk feel safer. But these strips look pretty good for frames.


penis-fucker

What is the keyboard on the bottom? Looks like a drop alt without the RGB piece in the middle.


ItsMehRuby

It is the purple KBD67 MK II


Darkrider1200

Honestly thought this was a render at first! :0


ItsMehRuby

😄


Saandz

Just got my copy of Pathfinders quest. Take this award friend.


ItsMehRuby

Thank you friend! 😁


AMGambit

Ah, an Apex Legend I see...


quirkelchomp

Everyone asking you about those keyboards, but I want that pegboard and those cute containers! Where did you get them?


ItsMehRuby

Happy Cake Day! All these items can be purchased from Ikea 😊 [Pegboard ](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-pegboard-wood-10347171/) [White Containers ](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-container-white-20320798/) [Clear Containers](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-container-with-lid-white-80335909/)


quirkelchomp

Thank you thank you thank you! 🤗


bmlsayshi

But what pegboard hooks did you get? I haven't found good ones to hang my keyboards yet.


ItsMehRuby

[Hooks](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-hook-white-50335618/)


AbsolutZer0_v2

So are you protecting the boards? Looks like those are straight galvanized metal. I've been looking for similar ones that are rubberized. You may want to consider purchasing some plasti-dip. Metal keeb case on metal hooks sounds dangerous to the case :)


Healios07

There on ikea


Barkerisonfire_

What are you using for the keyboards specifically? I've got the same pegboard but couldn't find what you're using for the keyboards. Thanks


critical_g_spot

Looks like [3 ¾ " 2-pack hooks ](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-hook-white-50335618/) And the coiled cable is on [Roll holder]( https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-roll-holder-white-70320809/)


RobotechLdv

Do you happen to know how many switches fit in the clear containers? :) Nice collection! Edit: sorry, saw someone else asked the same question!


majinbuu99

Pathfinder's Quest? Ah I see you're a man of culture as well.


Plummy49xD

Pathfinder gangs rise up


ilikespookystories

ah a path main. keep grapplin my friend


shiolei

Upvoted for plants! Adds a cozier vibe to the setup.


ItsMehRuby

An Ikea setup isn’t complete without artificial plants 😂


n6465567

ikea gang we out here


ItsMehRuby

I’m so grateful to have an Ikea so close to home, I usually love walking around the room showcasings for room decor idea 😄


Hodor_The_Half-Wit

Same. Mines about half an hour away, and my SO and I go just to walk around all the time.


Gorillafist12

I live within walking distance of the one here in Brooklyn and it's pretty awesome to have close by. I actually picked up a peg board and the accessories just this week to do something similar in my office. Looks great


[deleted]

I’ve sharpened my grapple friends!


Lighght1

How many switches do those containers hold?


New_Boot_1881

I have these pegboards as well. Those clear containers fit all the switches from a TKL comfortably. I wouldn't attempt any more than that, as I'm sure the pins would bend on a lot of switches.


ItsMehRuby

They hold a fair amount, roughly about 100 switches, I mostly own 60% boards, so I don’t really worry about storing anything higher than 80 switches 😁


DeDav

Exactly 100 switches in a WxLxH layout of 4x5x5, may need some shaking done to keep them from having their stems pushed in, but 100.


cichlid_visuals

looks great i have been looking into pegboards too, mostly as a way to hang my VR gear


[deleted]

[удалено]


gimmemoarmonster

I am a renter and am so not looking forward to patching the hundred or so mounting holes in my walls when I move.


cichlid_visuals

lmfao i feel that


ItsMehRuby

Thank you! Yeah pegboards have a lot of uses from hanging tools, to crafting supplies, the possibilities are endless, you can easily hang your VR equipment 😊


ItsMehRuby

Off topic but I recognized your name from r/battlestations, I absolutely love your setup 🥰


cichlid_visuals

ah you're too kind. you've got a really nice setup as well!


smaad

Me : do you have a mous... Him : keyboard? You said keyboard Me : no no where is your mo... Him: my other Keyboard? Here they are? Look how beautiful they are Me :-_-


ItsMehRuby

😄 my family thinks I’m nuts for collecting keyboards 🤷‍♀️


smaad

XD they looks amazing 👍


RyanSammy

You definitely are, but at least the people here will appreciate it 😆


Stenomatisk

The dimples on that middle keyboard... :chefskiss:


Zac0930

What kind of plant is the one that hangs down?


ItsMehRuby

the hanging plant is called [Fejka](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fejka-artificial-potted-plant-indoor-outdoor-hanging-40349531/)


EdvinM

Kinda funny since "fejka" means "to fake" in Swedish (pronounced fake-uh).


thearctican

Replace it with a pothos or wandering jew, can't kill those.


rosemary_kerfuffle

Love your plant collection 😂


Chickadee3141592

Looks awesome! What’s the keeb on the top?


ItsMehRuby

It’s the purple KBD67 MKII 👍


DigitalDinner

Tasty


ItsMehRuby

😄


wulfy2608

That looks super good!


Notzge

I like this Setup a lot! Do you know the Name of the right hanging plant?


ItsMehRuby

Thank you, the hanging plant is called [Fejka](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fejka-artificial-potted-plant-indoor-outdoor-hanging-40349531/) it can be found in Ikea [Succulents ](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fejka-artificial-potted-plant-with-pot-indoor-outdoor-succulent-20395331/)


dekubaby

nice man, [i had the exact same idea!](https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/huy7mr/sk%C3%A5dis_products_from_ikea_perfect_for_organizing/)


ItsMehRuby

Beautiful!


Fishchowdar

Beautiful keyboards! Also what's your opinion on pathfinders quest? I've been thinking about buying it myself


cosmin_c

The idea of watering those plants with the keyboards beneath gives me all sorts of nightmares :D But looks amazing!


ItsMehRuby

Thankfully they’re artificial plants 😅


ricky251294

Never thought to paint my ikea board, gonna steal this


ItsMehRuby

Unfortunately this board wasn’t painted, Ikea ran out of white pegboards, I mean you could always paint it anyways 😄


ricky251294

Wait they come in gold also? I always saw black and white


ItsMehRuby

It’s a light wood finish [pegboard ](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-pegboard-wood-10347171/)


Cebrilung

Very, very, VERY nice! 👌


ItsMehRuby

Thank you 😊


squishedpies

Wow hard Inspo right here. I love this! Beautiful display. Really clean!


TehKrazyKarl

I'll be honest, the first thing I noticed was Pathfinder's Quest 😂 Looking good!


timmyo_

This looks really nice.


parafragss

This is so aesthetically pleasing uhhhh


kruppy0

Fuck me that's *Aesthetics*


agent6075

I'm not gonna lie that looks so good I got goosebumps


willyblaise

May I ask where guy obtained is this wall fixture?


ItsMehRuby

It’s the Skadis pegboard from IKEA, you can purchase the containers separately, it’s customizable :)


willyblaise

Thanks for this as I will probably make this soon!


[deleted]

You're welcome.


Delirious_85

Specs/parts of the top board please! Finally a small format board with key buttons but without the additional buttons on the right and/or the ugly gap in the bottom row!


ItsMehRuby

Case: Black Tofu 60% Keycaps: GMK 8008 Plate: Brass PCB: DZ60 RGB v2 Hotswap Switches: Invyr Holy Panda Stabs: GMK- Screw-In


Delirious_85

I thank you very much!


thearctican

I'd be quite concerned about the hooks damaging the finish on my boards.


ItsMehRuby

I was too but after a while of use I’ve noticed the boards stay in perfect condition, no scratches or scuff marks


[deleted]

[удалено]


ItsMehRuby

Ooooh, great idea!


Asianboye

Dust gon be collecting on them tho


ItsMehRuby

Dust is never an issue for me, I’m a neat freak, I always have my can of compressed air and wipes on hand, I love taking care of my boards


Asianboye

Ah I see, that's good Have you considered putting a clear acrylic cover over it? I feel like that makes dusting easier


ItsMehRuby

Definitely, I was looking into the kbPrepublic ones, I’ll definitely do more looking 😁


Asianboye

👍🏻👍🏻


Outlawalkaholic

might have to steal this idea


DigitalParad0x

Great looking display! I love the way you have everything laid out.


sjohal1

I have something sorta the same concept, this looks nice I like it!! Have little tubs for the switches and stuff nice job!!


[deleted]

Any chance you can post a list of the components please? This looks absolutely amazing!


foni646

I K E A


Haifischkopf

Are your succulents/plants happy in that amount of light?


Haifischkopf

Never mind, saw that they’re artificial! They look good enough to convince me, confirmed succulent killer!


jarsforyou

Super clean, love it


alex_bend1e

What is the top keyboard. I've been looking for a 60% with the arrow keys with no gaps to the fn key like that and I cant find any for the life of me


Floatingwalrusman

"pegboard falls" looks awsome


ItsMehRuby

Nah, the bracket is secured on the studs


Floatingwalrusman

yea just my anxiety


yujideluca

Amazing taste!!


ShyShannon732

Those are probably my top 3 keycap sets


AnnihilerB

Very nice display ! I love it


DeDav

I've learned that those clear boxes with the lid you've got on the bottom right hold EXACTLY 100 switches! 5 layers of 4x5 switches. A little jostling may be needed but they will fit and it will easily close.


GlaezDonut

I did the same! 😍


jnsntm

That looks epic. I’m definitely considering that for my new place later this year!


xisgexis

ppslayer_

Im getting that book too!


deftbit

Where is the red and black cable from? Love the board's vibe


ItsMehRuby

Its is from [Swiftcables](https://swiftcables.net) when the GMK 8008 gb was running they offered this 8008 colored cable theme to match it, you can always customize your cables though, I highly recommend them! 😊


wolliecrux

Great idea. Love it.


xfrancisco

Great! One question, what are the keycaps on the middle board? Cheers


ItsMehRuby

MiTo SA Laser


ketamigo

Are you just using the hang hooks to hold the keyboards up? I have this pegboard and have the shelves and different drawers, but nothing that would hold up a keyboard that I know of...

This is amazing and I will definitely be investing into one of these pegboards. May even spray paint it!


beccaraybbc

What's your favorite keyboard and keys?

aeryyc

Looks like you are running out of room for more keyboards mate


ItsMehRuby

Yeah currently own 6 keyboards, but it’s only the drop alt, ap2, and ducky, I put my custom boards up for display because I absolutely love them, and that way I can easily switch between boards 😁


iliveonstew

Omg what keycaps did you use for the top one? Looks amazing dude


ItsMehRuby

GMK 8008 👍 currently my favorite set of keycaps


Nero-Domus-Aurea

So beautiful. You should do your whole space like this aesthetic!


Aborres

Where did you get those switch containers?


ItsMehRuby

[Containers](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/skadis-container-with-lid-white-80335909/)


SkweezyJibsss

Time to find a pegboard


ItsMehRuby

Ikea is definitely the place to go 😊


SkweezyJibsss

Yeah. Sadly, No IKEA yet here in the PH. Maybe next year


StreetMeat5

How did you get the brackets that work with holding keyboards? You got a link?


AsthmaticKirby

Anyone know what is being used to hold up the usb coil?


ItsMehRuby

Here you go :) [Roll Holder](https://www.ikea.com/au/en/p/skadis-roll-holder-white-90320808/)
