The pictures here of paneling, while of Pianos Recycled stock, are for illustrative purposes only. The panels shown may not be for sale but we have a very large range of front panels that can be inspected and purchased at our warehouse.


Great quality, good condition. Ornate design and craftsmanship.


Taken from the front of a vintage piano above the fallboard (top panel) and below the keyboard (bottom panel).


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


Our panels feature hand worked marquetry, inlays, carving, brassware and/or moldings according to the fashion of the period in which they were made and the makers design inspiration.


The arts and craft movement which started in the United Kingdom in the middle of the 19th century spurred a market for decorative design.


Decoration known as fluting(parallel grooves along the edges of the case) was popular until the 1920’s. German panels feature square/rectangular moldings like picture frames.


While some pianos built in the 1910-30’s period feature art deco styling, modern pianos tend to have no panel decoration.


Shop and pick up from our warehouse only.



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.
