I saw a few examples of how people made their keyswitch holes. Some creators used perfectly rectangular holes, while some added rounded corners to relieve stress at fracture points. I was going to test a few designs in scrap plywood, but I reconsidered and found a tin large enough to fit a few keyswitches. I drafted a plate with three keyswitch mounting hole styles that fit into the container. On the left are plain squares, the two center columns have extra lobes cut from the top and bottom corners, and the right side has rounded corners. I painted the wood after doing a test fit when I took the picture.
