first attempt at cutting boards. made them for my uncle who collects miniature pianos and anything piano related. got the idea from JL7. I used maple and walnut. I was overthinking the process and kept putting off making them. once I started making them it was a lot easier than I thought.

You did a great job with the boards. I’m impressed with your alignment in the first and second glue-ups, especially for your first end grain boards. Great work. I’m expecting to see a bunch more of your work. Oh, BTW, using JL7 as inspiration is also a great idea.

Jeff (JL7) has inspired many people with this design he created (me included).
Your boards look great and you uncle will be thrilled!

Very nice looking, but they seem rather small to cut a piano on.
