    Have you ever made a mosaic top for a table ? It would be super cool to take a round table top add some trim to build up an edge and then put down grout and arrange the keys in a circle let dry and then either pour clear resin over the top or grout several times. And let dry

    Heirloom seamstresses would love them to make small rulers to hang on their chatelaines. I'd love to have some. Any ideas where I can find some without a piano?

    I learned a new word today - chatelaines - thank you. Since I was a farmer and not a seamstress that word was not in my vocabulary.

    How about getting a large picture frame, resizing the keys to fit and then adding a picture of "Fats" Domino? Or Jerry Lee Lewis?

    Find a round mirror an line the keys up around it for a pretty piece of wall decor. It wouldn't matter if you actually overlapped them a little. I think that would be beautiful.

    Make a wind chime! Who says that wind chimes have to be all metal? I've seen a few made out of wood.....GO FOR IT!
