Grubby and time consuming would be the best way to describe workshop chores for the last few weeks. We take the rough with the smooth as a matter of course in the world of piano restoration, this month we have been dealing largely with rough! Aside from the regular work I do restringing my customers pianos I’ve had one of the dirtiest sets of keys to renovate and one of the most uneven looking grand piano frames to try to make presentable. Who’d have thought it would take a razor sharp chisel just to clean some piano keys? I remember my mum using a bit of spray polish and a duster! This month I’ve managed to fit in a little white collar work on the website too so check out the ‘New Look’ stock list!
