Hidden treasure…

Today’s 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 piano’s 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!
