Scored about 3/4×6x5’ of birds eye maple from the local HD store. Not bad for 15 bucks. The keys are bubinga. I still can’t get the keys perfect. I need more practice.
Thanks for looking! Matt.

The bird’s eye maple looks great! I have some that I am looking for the right project for – this could be it.

Someone recently threw out a futon frame near my house. All maple, or maybe beech. Stopped the car, threw it in the back and took it home. Haven’t decide what to make with it yet but I might make about 20 frames for starters. People around here go crazy for craft sale type stuff. Great idea to use the keys. What do you think would make a good key, walnut or cherry?
