This is my second project doing the piano board with keys and changed a few methods. I used maple and walnut strips per JL7 (Jeff) plans. One thing I changed was using 1/16 veneer strips for the key walnut spacers which made the key makeup a little easier. (See last picture) Each board is slightly under 12 in width and about 16 in length, I kept the thickness little over an 1 so they have the cutting block feel. I still haven't perfected the perfect key glue up as some slipped on me but most are lined up ok.I am keeping one of these as the last project was given away to a piano player. I'm glad some projects get to stay at home :)Thanks again to JL7 (Jeff)https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/98256
