Guest Speaker: Mike Hendry, Pianos Recycled
Pianos Recycled deconstructs old pianos destined for landfill or that have passed their use-by date, and then recycles the various components. This fully recycled and sustainable product offers to woodworkers and cabinet-makers an opportunity to work with timbers that are almost universally 100-135 years old, and featuring in particular, some veneers that are rare in the modern age. Mike will talk about how pianos are dismantled and show some examples of pieces made from piano timbers.
