This box came about as a commission to build something out of what little was left of an old family piano after it had been irreparably damaged. Unfortunately, the body of the piano couldn’t be salvaged; however, the ebony and ivory keys were still in great shape. The idea was to try and capture the spirit of the piano, if not the look.
The box itself is made with shop-sawn rosewood and narra veneer, with black-key ebony edgebanding and white-key ivory inlay. There are three stacking, dovetailed trays inside.
