Well, I promised Jeff that I would post a photo of my key board when it was completed. So, here it is. Thanks again for the dimensions. Mine might be a bit different but I think it worked out. The board is constructed out of Peruvian Walnut and Hard Maple. I finished it with Odies oil. The figure on the walnut end grain kind of got lost but I think that was because it has such an open grain.

Thanks for all the kind words and again thanks to Jeff for the inspiration and help. I’m not really sure how long it took because I was working on some other projects at the same time. I took my time. There were a lot of glue ups that’s for sure. I finished it with Odies oil and was disappointed. The figure in the Peruvian walnut end grain all but disappeared once the oil went on. This is probably because the endgrain is really open. All in all I’m happy with the results. Thanks Again.

That’s beautiful! Is the Peruvian walnut naturally that dark?

This was the first time I had used Peruvian walnut so I don’t have any experience other than this project. There was some great figurenin the endgrain until I put the oil on it. It is super porous and really soaked it up. I used Odies oil.
