The Unofficial Apple Weblog has a cool post showing how a user created a homemade Dvorak keyboard by manually prying off the keys and rearranging them to the new configuration.

The article includes Flickr page as to how to do this, what tools are necessary and how to carefully pull the keys from the keyboard.
The final step: If you’re brave enough to do this, an entry over at mwbrooks.com shows you how to select a Dvorak keyboard input (go to Mac OS X’s preference panes, select “International” and from there choose a Dvorak keyboard input).
Definitely not for the faint of heart, but if you can pull it off and it helps you type faser than you would on a standard QWERTY keyboard, have at it.
If you have any comments or suggestions about this, let us know.
