Coffee table from piano parts
Here the two side boards of a 100 year old piano are connected with a walnut butterfly (or bowtie) joint.
Wood from pin block, back beam and back post meet and mesh perfectly.
Piano wood turned on lathe
The notch in the edge is where a large screw held the heavy metal frame to the piano cabinet.
A most useful display table
Made for Progress in Bird Rock
The rectangular becomes circular.
Black keys, white keys
We should spend defense dollars on the arts.
Side arm wood and metal pedals.
Body was the banged up bottom board. Making it a bottom feeder made sense.
Metal supports from the "action", where hammers and dampers interact.
Piano wood box
Sides made from key stop rail. Handle made from two white keys and a black key.
Expanded plywood display
The sides of this display are single sheets of plywood with alternating cuts from the bottom almost to the top, then top almost to the bottom.
Another piano bench
Wood was the platform just under the keyboard from an earlier piano. Legs are just cool.
Pile O' Wood display table
At Progress in Bird Rock. Owner Bruce described it, I built it and added the drawer. Because why not?
Manzanita root ball hearts
Manzanita grows in the hills and mountains in eastern San Diego. I did not use any dyes or stains - the wood has a naturally fiery look.
Stand on wheels
Pallet wood, plywood, and rocking chair rails for the curved front edges
Piano note holder
When your piano is done playing notes you can still use the spring-loaded dampers to hold notes (or photos).
