Future projects…

Last week I made a (very rare..!) trip outside the workshop to my local timber merchant. I was buying Maple stock to make new legs and a lyre for a Blüthner Style-VII I bought last year. Currently the piano is finished in black polish, but it’s my intention to re-veneer the piano in maple.

There is SO much going on in the workshop at the moment that I’m not sure when I’ll get round to this rather special project piano. Keep an eye out for further information!

New bass bridge…

New maple bass bridge blank completed, seen here next to the old bridge on the bandsaw. Notice the new bridge is a few millimetres taller than the old one – this is to give me some material to play with when setting up the bearing a little later in the rebuild.

Bass bridge…

Rough cut Maple to build a new bass bridge for the Blüthner Style-X. Seen here just before the top piece was thicknessed to produce a bridge of the correct height.

Detail shot of the “bellyhead” on Blüthner No.83988. A rather interesting meeting of spruce, oak, beech, and maple.
