What is a pianodesk and why do I make them?
A "pianodesk" is just what it says, a piano made into a desk. Before the advent of television, radio and computers, the piano was the dominant source of entertainment in America. Having a piano in the house was as much a status symbol as the automobile is today. Some estimates show that there are over 10 million pianos in the United States. Many of these pianos, especially uprights, are made from rare or extinct woods and have a quality of craftsmanship that is unmatched in today's world of "sawdust and spit" plywood furniture. Unfortunately, most of these great works of art are going to the landfill instead of the restoration shop. Even with restoration, it is hard to sell an upright piano for the cost of labor. With this fact in mind, I have decided to do my part to ensure that at least some of these ancient beauties are put back into the home where they belong and once again become a useful and cherished member of the family.
