Steinway M #150 – Atlanta (Strip/Sand)

After a few weeks of work stoppage I am back to it on the Steinway.   On this phase you will see me removing the old finish, sanding, filling, dents, and replacing veneer.  This and grain filling are the nastiest parts of the restoration process but are also extremely important because the basis for a good as new piano are made here.

Typical on vintage Steinways are arm veneer issues. This one is no different. So I will remove the veneer and replace with new.

Here is a shot of the front of the piano after scraping the old original finish off.

Below you will see some pictures of the veneering I am doing. First the contact cement I have applied to both the veneer and the arm.
