Split keyboard has been on my list for a long long time (more than a decade). Building custom keyboards is on the raise in India. There are few websites selling custom keyboard kits ( https://stackskb.com/ ) . And they also nourish a community of builders in Discord.
My journey started with an interest in procuring Ergodox or the Moonlander keyboard. Cost of import and shipping was way too high. I was very happy and impressed when I found Ergodash build kits available in India. I noticed that these kits have SMB components and last time I soldered anything was during my school days. And that was 20 years ago. Good folks from StacksKB put me in touch with few folks who love to build. I managed to get in touch with another enthusiast from Bangalore.
