52-36 Piano box
This is my entry for the CURVED contest.
The box is a kerfed and laminated design with some dry and steam bending on the stretcher and legs.
The box is made from Baltic birch ply for the main body and veneered with shop cut walnut veneer.
The hinges are coil springs which work quite well in this application and are very inexpensive and easy to install ,the lid stay is also a spring loaded design.
The title came from the amount of keys that makes up the keyboard which is 52 white-maple keys and 36 black-walnut keys.
The interior liner is a red cloth with a cardboard backing for the bottom portion and the sides are double cloth with hemming tape and glued to the sides.
The finish is boiled linseed oil and a bees wax -mineral oil mix but further polishing is to come .
Hopefully I will be able to do a complete build blog on this as another box is being requested .
