Piano Maker Extraordinaire!

A good customer sent me these photos of his work which I thought you all may enjoy.
Most of my tools go the amateur woodworkers, but a few go to true professionals, of which Paul is one.

This is a copy of a Streicher very similar to that used by Brahms for the last 24 years of his life.
I'm no musician but the use of that walnut veneer is outstanding!

Above is a video of the piano in action.

And here is the man himself, Paul McNulty, looking deservedly proud of his work.


  1. "...Most of my tools go the amateur woodworkers." Considering the price i just hope they are not of amateur quality.

    1. Indeed not, but they are tools meant to be used rather than sat on a mantlepiece and admired.
