Our latest project to enter the shop is a 1922 Chickering PLAYER piano. Unfortunately it has been in a house fire. The challenge is to clean the huge amount of soot from the cabinet, plate soundboard and other salvageable ares of the piano, and then rebuild and refurbish the piano back to its original state.
And to top off the challenge of just the piano, it has an Ampico player piano built in.
Here are a couple of before and after pictures.
