I tend to be very critical of my finishing; always finding something that I could have done better. Regardless of the slight imperfections, I am thrilled with my finish. It was a challenge to put together. Thank you Jackie for providing me with an opportunity to go outside of my comfort zone!
The music on the front of the piano is a piece of scrimshaw; a threadwinder! The two gold circles on either side of it are magnetic needle minders.
Surprise! The piano opens up to reveal a keyboard also made from scrimshaw. Under the keyboard is a little tray with room for needles or maybe a bodkin. Behind the keyboard there is space for a pincushion or a ball of thread and a scissors!
Here's a final look at it. I think it's amazing!
Thank you for your visits and for your kind comments!
