Happy National Piano Month! I never learned how to tickle the ivories (I know, what were my parents thinking, right? I was busy taking tennis lessons, I guess?), but if I had, you’d better believe I’d be contacting Dutch musician and artist Harm Goslink Cooper to commission a handmade piano, like the one he made below.

File this charmer under “Things I Didn’t Know You Could DIY!” I’m not sure how Cooper constructed it, but one thing I am sure of is that it’d be a treat to sit down to those colorful keys. Check out his blog to see even more amazing instruments. (I spy a cello and an upright bass on the first page alone…)
