Where do you keep a keyboard?... In a piano, of course.May 16th, 2009 in member junk
A local senior center had an old player piano for me if I wanted it. So I took it but had to dismantle it on location first. I wasn't sure at first what I wanted to do with all the parts, but finally decided that the window on top was so cool as well as the "secret" door at the bottom. So if I put it back together, what could I make it? I'd seen previous posts with the piano bar and puppet theater, both ideas I thought were great. Then it occured to me, why not a desk?
I put the piano back together as a hollow shell and added shelves in the back. It's on casters so it rolls out easily. Computer monitors, printers, etc. go on top shelf. Open the window to view screen or lift to access printer. The middle shelf has plexiglass over keys so you can still see them but transitions into shelf so keyboard, supplies are stored here. The bottom shelf can house the modem and it could be accessed from the front by turning a lever to open the "secret" compartment. It will be interesting to see who buys it and when. But if I end up having to keep it, I won't be heartbroken.
