Mr. Rube Would Be Proud

As I understand it, my "new old piano" was built in 1909, which makes it over a hundred years old.  I have just finished using steel wool on one of the pedals, and all the small parts are now sanded and refinished.  I will finish the pedal assembly, and start on the larger lid and cabinet assembly.  It is terribly out of tune, but the bass just has such a beautiful tone!  I just love this piano, and it is going to be beautiful!

It is amazing what just a little elbow grease has done to restore the pedal, they just don't make them like the used to!
