A little while ago I inherited a piano, it was one of those free things and they even said they could drop it off, OK maybe it was my wife saying ’’hey we should get this..its free’’, then me saying ’’yes dear’’. Long story short there is/was a piano sitting in front of my shop….What do you do????
First thing first..disassemble, as it would be too heavy for my shop floor. So the afternoon was spent deconstructing a piano, actually it was very simple and I did not even have to get any serious tools out.
Ended up with a pile of keys, lots of timber and the harp that I intend to make into a glass top coffee table some day..
First project was these piano key, key holders. Both are maple but the dark one just has some stain. The maple on these is about .75”thick and book-matched, both are roughly 24” in length. On the dark one the change holder is just ebonized maple. I was able to find some unusual stainless hooks rather than the plain Jane ones.
Finished with danish oil.
The keys themselves were just cleaned and then lightly oiled.
