TinTinJunkFan writes: This is one of the most unusual and ambitious re-creations I've seen, it's wonderful...Loved your poetic story. And such woodworking talent! There is a piano so similar to this on my side of the family...are you available on commission to re-purpose it when the time comes if no one wants it?!?! Posted: 2:44 pm on February 5th
DumpsterDivingDiva writes: I just love the story/poem behind this piano.

You've done an AMAZING job!

I was just given a piano from an 1892 home.

I know now what I'm going to do with it.

Wish me luck!

And thank you for telling and showing us this beautiful story.
