So here is a piano bench I made for my wife. We were given a free piano a few years ago, but no bench.

I decided to make it all “curvy” . . . just because.

I had a couple blogs about the design process.

Here are a few more shots . . .

I really like this!

Ha! I thought about that . . . briefly.

I actually thought about it more for the key “separators”, but ended up using a piece of scrap walnut I had laying around.

Published where? :-) Just made this for my wife who plays occasionally. The piano is usually covered with plastic since it’s in the basement with the rest of the workshop. In fact, it’s taking up valuable tool space if you ask me.
