From the top of a piano – wooden cover that is hinged to the spine and folds down to protect the interior of the piano when it is not being played. When raised the lid acts an amplifier and helps in creating different levels of sound frequencies from the soundboard.


Usually veneered with 150-200 year-old European or North American timbers. The inner core is often birch, fir, spruce or poplar.


Many different types of wood are used in an American or European piano for various parts. These include birch, maple, fir, oak, mahogany, ebony, spruce, cherry, walnut, rosewood and many other exotic woods.


Australian piano makers like Wertheim and Beale used local timbers such as cedar, Queensland walnut, Victorian Ash, Queensland silky oak, and rosewood (Australian Rose Mahogany).


Pianos were built as both instruments and pieces of fine furniture to satisfy the demand from the rising middle class in nineteenth century western countries. Piano making businesses would employ not only specialist instrument makers but also skilled cabinet makers to handcraft the piano case and decorative moldings.
