found out that a friend was getting married in about a month so i grabbed some scraps in the garage and put this together for him. the box lid is curly maple, the body is chery and the keys are mahogany i lined the bottom with a thick black felt. the photo dose not show it but i left the lid pretty thick (just under an inch) to keep it heavy after routing around the side only 1/4 of an inch is visible. all comments welcome

Beautiful. I love the butterfly keys, and the contrasting colors of the wood. How did you finish it?
