Piano casework finishing requires particular care and attention to detail
Complete Piano casework restoration and repair service. Sympathetic surface restoration and Colour Matching.
I can organise Piano mechanism repair and piano tuning.
Existing finishes can be repolished to repair small areas of damage. Severely damaged, bleached or crazed finishes generally require stripping off before repolishing. Careful preparation including steaming out indented damage and re-glueing bistered veneers is essential to achieve perfect results.
I can re-ebonise previously ebonised pianos. As well as finishing mahogany, walnut or rosewood pianos to the required matching shade. A mirror-like piano finish requires a dust-free environment and countless applications of French Polish, heavier shellac mixtures or modern lacquers followed by spiriting off – there are no shortcuts.
I have a long-term working relationship with Rick Ohlendorf. A local highly skilled and qualified piano tuner and technician and as such we can offer full and complete restoration of piano casework and mechanisms. Working together we have fully restored many pianos. Including several Beckstein and Steinway Grand Pianos. Please feel free to email Rick with any piano mechanism or tuning enquiries firstname.lastname@example.org.
