    A little bit of progress.

    Just choosing the hinges while I wait for a router bit to arrive( it turns out that my router bit selection didn't have a 9mm straight cutter), the hinges come from Ian Hawthorne Home ~ Premium Box Hinges | Box Hinges | Brass Box Lock

    Well progress is slow that's because I have the time, I had a lot of gardening to do, I was waiting for my router bit and I just fancied taking my time so here is progress so far:

    For the benefit of those who ask questions via email the masking tape is to protect the main wood from the Japanese saw that will cut off the excess wood on the keys. Following that :

    I now have to choose the banding that will go on the top edge of the second box, the first box is having its banding glued on hence all of the clips, you can see the last section waiting for space to be glued and blended. The smallest box will have an asymmetric lid like this one below. In the meantime I have to make some thin stock for the internal trays for all and cut out some baize liners and the router bit has arrived so I shall set up for the hinges.

    Have a fun lock down all and stay safe
