  2. Refinished Piano Stool

    I got this off a guy on Craigslist for $75 a few months back. It was a present for my girlfriend. All of the glue in the leg joints had dried out and the legs were wobbly, and the entire thing was painted with thick, black paint - even the glass balls on the claw feet. The paint was all...
  3. End grain Keyboard

    This end grain keyboard was made for my son the musician and music educator. I used the plan from the December 2016 WOOD magazine using maple, walnut end grain, and wenge veneer between the white keys. In an earlier version when I made the keys from two different boards they absorbed the finish...
  4. Full sized piano...

    ...box. This was going to be a "quick, fun and easy" project - everyone knows pianos are dead easy to build, right? Well, it was fun, but it was neither quick nor easy.

  9. End Grain (Key) Board Collection....

    Not sure why, but this idea has been bouncing around for a long time now. It seemed simple enough since a keyboard is just basic lines….. I did a little research to try and figure out what the standard sizes of the keys are…..and that's a can of worms, so i picked some numbers and took pencil...

    I made this ramp to load a piano into the truck. It is made from 2×10 SYP eight feet long with two aluminum brackets rated for 700 pounds each. I added two five foot sections underneath to add more rigidity, plus the two side rails. It worked fine with a 500 pound piano plus four people...
