I think Ivory, clearly.

Saturn & Jupiter both jump out at me because of connections to Holstís The Planets - but I donít think either is what weíre going for here.

Maple is, I believe, a high end wood used in pianos. Although Iím not entirely sure why we would be given pianist & not piano.

Beyond thatÖ my brain could see connections to March, Button, Shoe, Tip & VolumeÖ but I donít really know much about pianos or pianists, and again, not sure what the latter would clue that the former wouldnít.

I don't know much about pianos either, but does a pedal Lock something in place?

Ooh, good call with Ray Charles. That would point towards Pianist over Piano.

Thereís definitely pedals on a piano - but I donít believe they lock anything. I think they press against the strings inside to change the frequency of the vibrations. They push pads onto them I believe.

Iím definitely good with Ray next if you want to lock that.

Pianos have keys though, and keys are used on locksÖ so you could get there by that extrapolation even if they arenít completely related.

Clearly SHOE. And likely BRUSH. (feel free to lock these in)

What else can you polish? Maybe SWORD or even SKI?

Plus we still have one for trayful.

Shoe
Brush

Sword Ski and Lock would be the only others I see, but I like sword the most.
Still think best bet for trayful is popcorn, but again we could sit on it if we are not sure.

Let's do sword next (if both are right) and then I'm ok with trying Popcorn at this point.

For the record I was going for IVORY, RAY (for Ray Charles, yes!), and MAPLE (for the Maple Leaf Rag, a famous early ragtime piano piece). I was a bit worried about The Planets, though one of them was mine. And I was very worried about VOLUME, because if I had used piano instead of pianist someone might have thought I was being very clever and referring to the volume marker piano (vs forte). So pianIST was for two reasons -- to evoke Ray Charles and to steer you away from Volume.
