Fellow woodworker and LJ, Lee Barker, gave me a few pieces of salvage from a piano dismantle project he had in
progress. They turned out to be pieces of the bridges for a spinet piano, made of beech lumber with supporting pins where the strings pass through. They hung around my shop for some time without producing any inspiration until one day I discovered one of the mirrors that I built a couple of years ago started coming apart and the glass tiles suffered from extreme glue failure. That left me with a stripped pine frame around a 12” square mirror, so I added some thin cherry pieces, cut them and the frame in curves, and surrounded them with the curved bridge pieces. It took a bit of fitting and I did not alter the bridge pieces from their original size except to slightly trim the ends.
19” wide, 20 1/2” high, 1 1/2” thick, gloss lacquer finish.
