The Model D Steinway returned from the refinisher two weeks ago. This is about a month later than I anticipated. But excellent work is worth waiting for. The satin ebony finish is beautiful. Since then, the piano has been strung and the damper work has been completed. I am now in the process of restoring the action. I typically wait to do the action work until after I have the piano strung and the dampers installed. I use the old action to tune the piano multiple time to get it up to pitch,and this allows the piano to begin settling in while I do the action work.
