From Old Piano to New Shelf
I began this project on accident… I was actively looking for a used piano to call my own, and we have this fantastic local website with used listings. I found a beautiful old piano for free, and was fully planning on restoring it to working order… I somehow got the beast home and upon closer inspection realized the soundboard (what the strings are attached to and where the sound resonates) was cracked in several places, and while the basic mechanics where all in tact, it wasn’t worth the time, effort and money it would take to restore it. Sooo…. I decided to use the keyboard and platform to make a shelf for my house!
