The breadboard is pegged in the center. I thought about doing that to the end keys, they are still removable. maybe that would work. deepening the slot will be a lot of work with a chisel but probably the only option for that.

So the breadboard end is not pegged or anything?—just glue in the center?

Is the stepped key still removable? Maybe you could deepen the slot there and get a floating tenon in behind, with a slotted hole for a peg?

A small V-groove at the joint line is probably a good idea—will disguise the tiny gap.

For the nick, I think either of these two options is reasonable:

1. Cut off 1/2”

2. Patch in a “dutchman”—or epoxy fill—and recognize that it will show but will not offend.
