The restoration has begun! This is a nice Estey parlor organ made in 1898. It is going to need a new bellows and bellows platform since the original ones are riddled with woodworm. The case will need to be refinished completely.
I have treated it for woodworm although it was treated before. You can’t be too careful.
I will keep posting pictures and let you know how it is going. Sign up if you would like to receive email notification of new blog entries. Lots of photos below.
