Lyre parts…

Lyre box for the Blüthner Style-X – mahogany to match the legs. I was able to salvage the centre section the holds the pedals, but had to move the holes (which havn’t been drilled yet in this picture) for the rods as they had been badly positioned, causing the rods to bind in the guide bushes.

New Blüthner legs…

A recently finished job – making new legs, all threaded wooden case fixtures, and lyre for a Style-X Blüthner. Beech cores, with Mahogany outers for a closer colour match to the Rosewood case. Please look here for a picture of the legs after staining and finishing. In the past I’ve used the original cores from turned legs that have been boxed – this was the first time I built legs from scratch. The original legs and threaded fittings had all been removed in the past and replaced with modern square legs.
