2017-01-28 (Sa) Tough Pi-ano

Every single wire was trimmed, fitted with a terminal, crimped, and installed on a switch. This was a time-consuming process and each wire was given attention because there was not much opportunity to duplicate work in an assembly-line fashion the same way when building the boards.

A 1x12 board was cut to length to form a base for the Pi-ano. Doubling the depth should provide more than enough room for all the components on the inside. It may be possible to trim the whole back end with a single saw pass to gain a totally flush end.

Risers were cut for the rear segment. Another piece of 1x6 lumber will have to be purchased for the back side of the Pi-ano. Each riser was made the same way as the front risers. Similarly, they will attach to the base in the same way, with a wood insert nut.
