Old piano

  • November 2, 2016

This piece of furniture is important, I built it for my dad and for my mom my dad had surgery and he can't sit a normal table, so using the parts from an old piano, I created this table so they'll both be able to sit next to each other any Thanksgiving dinner the piano was from the early 1900s it was unsalvageable destined to be thrown away so doing what I could to take as many parts as I can I recycled it into this table all in all the table probably cost five dollars to make and that was for the paint which is going to be thrown out as well.

  • Wow! Incredible job working with reclaimed wood. Your paint/finish combo looks great, too. What kinds of finish did you use?

    • Minwax colonial maple NO 223 for the top and good old Rust-Oleum painters touch white

    • Not for sale ATM I would love to win the cordless plus one set

  • Good choice, how cool would it be to have a whole garage full of green and black tools.

    • Curious...did you receive any of your tools yet?

      By fEzZ
    • No , last time I won it took a few weeks. I'm thinking with the holidays it might take a while

      By Up_Cycle_Engineer
    • Ok, I was just wondering. What threw me off and was weird to me, was I got a driver bit set, about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and nothing since. Wasn't sure if maybe they got lost in transit or FedEx ended up delivering it to someone else by mistake. Have a Happy and safe New Years man! :)
