Got it home finally, took a fukin horse trailer and diesel dually to get it here. omg that thing is heavy. Can't wait to gut it.

İmage

Isn't that old and venerable either, lots of laminate and foot peddles bounce off pressboard. So I'll be quite comfortable turning this into something someone might want yup.gif

yup.gif

lol.gif I did mention when the harp is gone it would weigh half as much. It really isn't a prize piano, lots of plywood in the construction. But there is a solid core and I'm gonna either make it useful, pretty, or burn it. That mofo will not be moved again unless someone else does it.

It sure does look plain Jane. You could attach the music holder to it for a decorative effect, or maybe find some decorative carved wooden accent pieces at antique stores and attach them on to it too.

It is plain and not a quality piano at all. Except for the actual frame, it's laminate on thin plywood. That will all go. I don't feel guilty at all taking it apart. The harp might make something funky too.

Should be fun.

I am sure you'll find a use for the harp. That table looks fabulous.

A swinging gate indoors? It is made of brass, right? What about a fancy pot rack?

No, outside, I have a really nice front yard, rather park like but the gate is thick stucco wire and the post needs replacing. It would look gorgeous there.
Pot rack is a very good idea too hmm.gif

Managed to get lots done yesterday. Going to take a bit more effort to get the harp out.

Yeah it's cool. But it's made of cast iron gaah.gif and it's huge! Finally figured out how to get it out, we'll have to tip the piano onto it's back and slide it out the bottom. It's bolted under the frame and won't be lifted -if it even could be lifted- from the top without wrecking the wood.

Because it expands with the sound board... or something like. Supposed to be brass but cast iron is cheaper and does the same thing if not so well.
