Another thought!, You could use keys from the infamous "deadflesh" ZX80 keyboard. Wooden case, and the conceit is complete!

It's probably in poor taste, my my first thought is to call it the "Jesus Keyboard", because there's a big nail in the middle. Make the rest of it out of wooden parts ,and you have a great, though maybe blasphemous, novelty keyboard!

  Are you sure? yes | no
