This was the link I posted just before I took it to the finishing room… (AKA my garage). I explained more about the piano there but I got it finished this week took me some time working on it in my free time, non-stop. Plays like a brand new piano but looks like it came out of an old rustic saloon 100 years ago. Exactly what I dreamed up, I feel like it represents myself well.
I have done four different layers of finish; tea stain, vinegar, gel stain and an oil stain. I sanded the last oil stain in spots to finish off the aging process and match the other furniture I have made. I have taken different shots of the piano with lid open and closed to show the different set ups. I finished the inside with some faux looking piano components and hammer gold paint. I plugged it in for the first time since I started this project holding my breath… (drum role) It sounded great. Keyboard is excellent, weighted keys with all the pluses of being digital but the look of a rustic baby grand. I would have made a full size but felt this was a good start. I maybe will make another one. I am already shopping for a keyboard… Don’t tell my wife.
Enjoy. Thanks for all the wonderful comments from before.
I was just looking at the pictures. All I had was a cell phone camera so sorry for the poor photos. If you want to check out my website and facebook page I will be posting pics in the near future when my photographer wife sets up an actual photo shoot.
