VIDEO: Paul Leverett, antique piano restorer

See video

For the March issue of Homes & Antiques we met Paul Leverett, antique piano restorer for Piano Restorations Ltd. With a lifetime of experience rebuilding pianos, Paul, his dad Colin and his uncle Derrick, have fine-tuned a skill that allows them to breathe new life into antique models destined for the scrapheap. 

In this short video, Paul discusses the intricate methods used to restore an antique piano back to its former glory and why he feels it is important to pass these skills on to the next generation of craftsmen. 

Read the full interview with Paul in Homes & Antiques' March issue, out now.
