5′ 4” Chickering Grand #41

This piano is in from a fellow piano re-builder. He has asked us to handle the cabinet work. His customer is very excited to get this piano back because it is a family heirloom.  Upon getting into the restoration of this piano I noticed some veneer issues.  So I called the rebuilder and discussed the situation with him and we decided to go with an open pore finish.  An open pore finish leaves the pores of the grain exposed and will help to hide the stressed veneer that could be an issue if this piano was finished in a closed pore finish.  The cabinet is now finished and I will begin the parts soon.
