We were invited to a birthday barbecue at very short notice. My wife asked if I’d any ideas for a gift. The intended recipient is a keyboard player and I’d recently taken the guts out of a mid-1930’s Eavestaff mini piano as it was beyond all hope. (I’ve installed a Korg electric piano in the old body – it looks just the same and never needs tuning). Anyway, I had the idea of using some of the old keys as the lid for a CD box & this was the result. It was hastily put together & the glue was hardly set when we presented it.
When my wife saw the result, she was keen that I did another as there was a space on her dressing table for just one more box. The third picture shows the version I made for her.
