Since mafe missed my birthday, I decided to make my own. This one is Canarywood [I think] with Ipe splines. The wood came from the keyboard cover of a scrapped piano my ww buddy found. Mine is larger than mafes [see yardstick]. Finish is 3 coats of BLO followed by Renissance wax. I should have used bigger magnets since my lid is bigger/heavier but all in all I think it is a pretty good plagerism.
