Music Desk Frame Kit

(Click for larger image)

This is VCP’s Music Desk Frame Kit, pictured here in assembled Rounded-Front style in Brazilian rosewood. See the descriptions of our vintage Rounded-Front and Sketch 380 Square Scalloped End Panels for period-appropriate usage on your candidate piano.
The kit consists of four components: two spanning rails and two end panels. The rails tenon and dovetail into the end panels per original Steinway joinery design. The rebuilder trims the unit in width to fit the piano, and then rabbets  the ends to accept the rim runners. Both tasks are easily performed before the kit is assembled.
VCP offers this kit in maple-for-ebony, mahogany, walnut, and Brazilian rosewood (Rounded-Front style only).

The Rounded-Front Kit (for “vintage” Steinways) is available in three widths: narrow, standard, and wide. Refer to the Music Desk End Panel product description(s) for a complete explanation.

• Narrow: 52″ wide by 12-1/2″ deep (for 85-note Steinways)
• Standard: 54″ wide by 13-1/2″ deep (for most 88-note Steinways)
• Wide: 56″ wide by 14-1/2″ deep (for 88-note C&D Steinways)

The Square Scalloped Kit (for “modern” Steinways) is available in the 56” wide configuration, suitable for Sketch 380 models S-D. The panels measure 10-5/16” wide by 11” deep.
