Wrest plank…

Polishing the new wrest plank for a Sheraton Bechstein model “A” grand. Another late night in the workshop!

Note the old plank just behind (underneath all the tools) being used as reference for the new plank.

Hidden treasure…

Todays work was preparing the inside of the Style-X case for the frame to be fitted. One of the jobs was to scrape and sand the inside of the pianos rim. It was originally polished black – scraping the polish away revealed some rather nice wood underneath…

I continued scraping away the old polish, then sanded the wood to a fine finish before polishing it with clear shellac. The rim came out a little darker than I’d hoped, but the piano will now have a nice piece of polished walnut to compliment the gold frame. That was a nice surprise!
