Day 15: Keyboard and Keyframe Ready for Pins

In the photo below, the keyboard balances atop the completed keyframe. The next step is to tack the keyboard to the keyframe and drill all of the holes for the balance and back rails. Once they are drilled, I will start with the keyframe by mounting all of the pins, papers, and felts.

Then, I will begin the grueling process of cutting the keys apart and finishing the balance rail holes with a key mortise punch from The Instrument Workshop (have yet to order it - it's #8081 on the linked page), as well as cutting and preparing the back rail slots on each of the keys.
