We recently were tasked with a full piano restoration. This piano had a number of scuff marks, scratches and general wear and tear to the lid top and sides. Whilst still in full working order, the instrument was looking very tired and worn. Being black, the marks and damage were very noticeable, with bare wood beginning to show through. Our customer asked David to repair the damage and to bring the piano body back to life.
Rather than fully strip back and re-polish the woodwork, which would’ve removed the stencilling to the piano lid, David used an ebonised polish to colour match and repair each area of damage in turn. He then gave the whole piano a clean and revive to restore the shine. As you can see from the before and after photographs below, the instrument now looks as new.
