Once upon a time my father thought he could take apart and tune a second-hand piano we had picked up since he had once had a job in college doing that. Long story short - he couldn't and the lovely wooden pieces of the piano started to gather dust in our basement. So finally I grabbed this one and decided to turn it into something...a lot of ripping and modge-podging later...this is what appeared. I stole the knobs from my father's workbench as well...amazing the stuff you find down there. There was another piece with beautiful molding I had plans for but alas we moved and no one thought it worth saving.
