Another Table from a Repurposed Piano

In another segment of my repurposed piano series, here is the end table my dad made for me. The legs are from original parts of the piano, and he used some other salvaged wood for part of the shadow box to contain the piano keys. You'll notice it looks different from the one he made for my sister, since each uses different parts of the piano.
 I learned to play piano on these keys. I remember the broken ivory on that one A key.

The old piano looked a lot like this one I found on the internet, except it was more ornate.
The table legs are made from the front let, and also from the half-leg that was there for decoration on the body. My dad cut the back legs for my table from the body of the piano.

 Isn't it cool how the keys were all numbered? To get them to fit right in the table, they couldn't be reassembled in perfect order.
Watch for more piano projects coming this week!
