So after about an hour and a half I finished building my Gherkin kit. For those of you who don’t know, a Gherkin kit is a 30/35% Ortholinear kit that you can use to build your own keyboard.
When I first posted about getting hold of a kit I also mentioned that I’d make a guide for building said kit as I was unable to find a perfect guide on building a Gherkin, however while I was building said keyboard I didn’t take as many pictures as I’d have liked and don’t have the resources to make a tutorial that flows well. The video I used as a rough guide was an archived live stream from the channel The Board Podcast. On the same channel I used a guide for flashing the Pro-Micro that is installed with the Gherkin to actually turn it into a usable keyboard.
If anyone gets there hands on one of these kits and would like some help feel free to get in touch and I’ll do my best to help out. Below I’ll add the rest of the pictures from while I was building.
