Mason & Hamlin Upright

Currently doing a refinish job on this late 1800s piano. You can always tell that redecorating was in a piano’s past during the 1950s or 1960s when you see the baby blue here or even lime green.

There is a wonderful African cherry veneer under this paint. I have to confess I am pretty well along in the restoration process but figured Id post anyway so here goes.

The customer requested the pianos original red color so that’s what I am doing. It’s a shame that some of the blue is stuck in the grain but most of that will remain hidden.

Getting the block sanding done for a mirror slick finish.

All finished with satin clear coat. This piano is going to be a knockout when put back together.

The company Im doing this for will be reassembling and delivering in a few days.
