Plans are from Woodsmith Magazine. The narrow one is from plans, the wide one I modified the plans to accomodate.

Walnut and poplar with Contrasting Mitered Keys.

The original plans called for Cherry and Maple. But I really like the strong contrast that the walnut and poplar gave the overall look. Plus, I really like working in walnut and really dont like cherry :)

All four are now displayed on various friends or family’s desks.
