Rafael Valdes joined Antique Piano Shop from Finland where he made wooden boats by hand. Rafael has a history of woodworking and has an attention to detail to make sure your piano turns out perfectly. As a boat builder, Rafael learned the importance of ensuring every piece of wood is placed perfectly together so the boat is watertight. He has brought that skillset to Antique Piano Shop and is using it to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your piano. For Rafael, everything he does is focused on making sure your piano is accurate and restored with the highest attention to detail. He says restoring pianos takes a lot of focus because your piano isn't just an instrument. He views every piano like a piece of art and takes great care in his work.
