From Old Piano to New Workbench


I’m a DIY’er at heart and have always had access to workspaces – both formal and informal. I’m also a university student and this spring I will be graduating after years of on again off again school. The problem with this, however, is that I will be moving into an apartment—-and away from the large and handy workshop that I have had access to at my parents house my whole life.

Fortunately for me, while helping build a garage storage loft, my friend told me he was getting rid of his ancient and far from musically sound upright piano. This piano has since taken the form of a hidden workbench that when not in use looks like a regular piano, but when the front is removed, it reveals a pleasant and useful space to work on various projects.
