woodfab Posted January 5 Report Share Posted January 5 Well for some of us spending a-lot money on an instrument that we want is a tuff sell to our partner, in my case, the wife, I've always dreamed of a real piano but after playing quite a few I found that I',m talking now at about $12,000 at least. Wife said,"YA Right". so I thought, I'm pretty good at woodworking so I could pick up an old piano and re-build it! I got obsessed and over eight years I picked up 13 baby grand pianos and read and tried my best to end up with a nice piano! Well after eight years I felt it was time to give UP! Photos at (www.woodfab.com) I have to say I did learn a lot about pianos. Now that I'm thinking about building some Guitars, I think it will be cool to build some Guitars out of wood salvaged out of 100 years old pianos. A lot of the wood I salvaged is maple from behind the key-bed and some cross supports . It will be interesting to see 100 year old wood to produce music again! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
