Day 6: Trey to the Rescue!

My son, Trey, helped scrape and sand down the keyboard blank today while I was at the day job. He's my Sanding Block Warrior! In fact, he has more woodworking experience than I and has made some great suggestions so far. Thanks, Trey!

The next step is to trim this piece down to 14 15/16" x 29" and start working on the arcades, the decorative pieces that are tacked onto the ends of the keys facing the player. I will make these from a single piece of quarter sawn oak in keeping with my Mission style design theme. Trey has approved this idea.
