refinishing includes taking all parts off the piano and removing the old
finish from all wood parts. All surfaces are prepared for a new
finish with necessary sanding, veneer repairs, and dent filling.
With the wood ready for a finish, dyes, paste filler, and topcoats are
patiently applied. Necessary color and tonal adjustments are made
between coats to make the finish clear, warm and rich. After a full
bodied lacquer is applied, the finish is allowed to cure for at least a
week before it is rubbed to a traditional satin or semi gloss sheen.
