This is the most advanced instrument project I have done....executed between 1997 and 2003 (started at University where I was a mature degree student in Musical Instrument Technology).

Wow Wee!!!

What an undertaking?

My projects usually are done over 3 weekends.

Great achievement Bernie

The white keys here were covered with re-cycled old piano key-tops. This material could be used extensively in CBG's, is high quality and has value. My black keys were cut from ebony guitar finger-boards but I could also have recycled the old piano black keys.

There are probably many other items that can be re-deployed in instrument building....

I made this long before I had even heard of CBG's! They only take a few days...this took years!

Thanks for your comments. As I am a musical instrument fanatic and have a wide collection of them across all types. Making a replacement set of piano keys might be possible but challenging! Vicious!!!
