Had a couple old boards that had started to dry rot. The size was based on the cuts I could make and get the rest of the usable lumber for this and a simple mirror frame . It’s about 12×8x6 walnut with Mahogany keys. I still need to make the interior compartments and will probably use felt on the bottom sections.
