Baby Grand Piano Bookcase Conversion

Baby Grand Piano Bookcase ConversionThis was a big build! Commissioned by a friend to turn a Baby Grand Piano with a damaged sound board into a book case for their music room.I started by stripping the piano, build up the frame what help the sound board, veneered the inside with mahogany to match the outside. Inset the shelves. Built out arches and used the key bed as a bottom shelf. I left the piano serial number visible and highlighted it in gold.Added a maple back to mimic the original soundboard. Trimmed the lid to act as trim and positioned a maple keystone at the top as accent.Finally reattached the pedals for accent. They couldn't be happier. Delivered and installed. Now to be used to store music books and other items.

School Bowls

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


School BowlsThese area couple bowls I turned at school between classes or when I didn't have any turning students for that class. These roughed out blanks were on the shelf for quite a while and no one wanted to finish them, so…The walnut bowl is 6” x 2 1/4” and is finished with clear gloss lacquer.The Osage orange bowl with the branch hole through it is 7” x 4 1/2” and is finished with satin poly.I'm giving the walnut bowl to the new secretary at the high school who lets me in with the visitor badge each day.
I giving the Osage bowl to my friends Myron and Diane who gave me the big stash of Osage Orange wood a couple years ago.Cheers, Jim
