I spent a few sleepless nights wondering if I could ever pull this one together !! Well I slipped on a few notes yes I guess that’s why they call them accidental keys …. I’m sure someone will pickup my mistake but I have the say thanks for the inspiration from JL7 (jeff). He was very quick to send me the plans even though I stayed up late following them !!!

The board is made all end grain with width at about 11.5” with length just shy of 16 the depth I am just shy of 2”. Wood of course is mostly walnut with maple for the keys and spacers are all trimmed walnut.

Thanks to for the nice video and special thanks to jeff (JL7) for the help

Real tired !!!

Looks great. Also thanks to JL7 I have made one. You have to make your brain work for this project. But I think it has been my favorite project I have done. Thank for sharing.

Thanks to all no one commented on my key mistake ( forgiving crowd) that’s a good thing for me. Cobler saw your tray before starting this project and almost considered doing that.
