Goldsberry Steinway B Pedal Lyre Work
The pedal box became unglued from the lyre posts. These are some pictures representing the work I did to repair it correctly.
I happened to be planning to visit my friend Larry Buck at his super well equipped shop in Lowell MA, so I brought the project with me.
