We have many tools in our arsenal, when it comes to our abilities and preferences in making a fantastic musical instrument into a piece of fine visual art.
Our expert finishing staff has performed warranty work for Bosendorfer, Estonia, Mason & Hamlin, Baldwin and others. They are acknowledged experts in using a variety of finishing materials from traditional shellac, varnish, and lacquers, to state of the art resins, including polyester.
Here at Cunningham Piano Company we always have a specific goal in mind when performing cabinet restoration on a specific piano. The choice materials we use for veneer work, staining, and actual finishing may differ depending on what we feel can bring out the best in an instrument.
Our customers are also able to choose custom stains, colors, grains, and finishes for a unique result that is exclusively theirs.
