I’ve been very neglectful adding instruments I work on into this website. I work on so many and would rather be in the workshop or on the road than updating my websites.
This is a beautiful Steinway square ca. 1864 restored for a private owner in Pennsylvania. Yes, the lid went on before it went home. Original finish cleaned up. Massively damaged legs restored using wire armature and wood epoxy and stain to resculpt and faux finish. Sweet sounding instrument!
I had the great pleasure of exhibiting at the 2017 Boston Early Music Festival Exhibition with display of the beautiful instruments from the AMD line from Atelier Marc Ducornet along with two kits from The Paris Workshop and a clavichord of my own making. Julien Bailly and Lucie Ducornet came from France to help at the booth. We had a wonderful time, saw so many old friends, made new friends, and sold some instruments and kits!
I attended Forte/Piano, a once in a lifetime gathering of the world’s many of the greatest lovers of the historical piano including performers, scholars, and builders. Words cannot express. It was an honor and a privilege.
I will be showing kits as well as debuting the AMD Logo line of harpsichords from the Atelier Marc Ducornet.
Working in Seattle for several clients on 19th century pianos, including an 1875 Erard, an 1860 Pleyel and others.
I’ll be holding down the fort with Carey Beebe, discussing TPW kits showing instruments and kits from The Paris Workshop at the Boston Early Music Festival Exhibition at the Radisson hotel in downtown Boston from June 15-18.
Come see a stage 1 kit as it comes, and a completed French single!
My big French double once again served the Chamber Music Series at Spoleto hosted by Charles Wadsworth for the last two weeks of May.
