Here are a few pictures of the first coats on the piano.  Most of the parts are mahogany, and a few parts are maple.  Some color adjustments to these pieces are still necessary.

These pictures capture the wood grain and depth fairly well.  The actual color will be different on your computer screen.  Flash photography is often frustrating when trying to capture the nuances of wood grain and color.  You are welcome to visit my shop anytime to view the piano.
