A Piano Stool Restoration

This poor piano stool had been really really overworked & had seen much better days. Also, someone had previously done a fix-up hack job on it.

I got it barely holding itself together & posing a serious threat to the young pianist that loved it so much.

I could see that it required a complete re-build so I set about carefully dismantling it and did all of the following:

  • labelled up all the joints
  • sanded & cleaned up all the old varnish finish
  • glued up all the cracks
  • filling all chipped broken pieces
  • re-fitted all the joinery
  • re-cut both dowels & re-boring mortices
  • re-shaped 2 elements that were cracked beyond repair
  • re-fitted all the pieces
  • re-glued & clamped up everything
  • & finished it with a good quality replenishing oil to bring out the beautiful natural grain.

Finally the new seat went off to our upholsterer for some brand new foam & fabric. The result speaks for itself I think. A piano stool that can be passed on in the family for generations to come.
