The parts of the piano case-rim, top, keyboard cover, and legs- are brought together for finishing. Cabinetmakers sand the parts smooth. The finishers apply the stain to the case parts and ready them for many lacquer coats that will go on each case part.

The piano gets ten coats of gloss lacquer and is given a final oil polishing. Now the time to assmble the case parts and put the action into the piano and get the first chipping or rough tuning on the piano.
