    I just had an epiphany after seeing two old pianos for free.
    They would make a great enclosure of a decent size with a little modifications.
    Now to see if I have a spot for one.

    Uprights? Those are heavy.

    Very heavy, particularly the cast iron sound board. Usually built from good wood though, I took an old upright one apart once and found it was mostly teak.

    Yea I moved those uprights a few times. It seems the older the heavier which is why you can get them so cheap other than paying someone to get rid of them.
    I figure I would have to 'gut it' as much as possible before moving and would likely be pretty tough.
    A good idea maybe for the future but I just don't seem to have that much space right now.

    Would love to try that, even though part of me hates the idea of destroying a perfectly good piano, lol.

    LOL! Imagine finding an old "player" piano and converting it so it looks like the key or on the inside! And rigged so when the animal gets on the keyboard it starts playing.
    Talk about messing with folks' minds!
