the Pianoman came, brought us a "new" piano, but declined to take the old one. Since it will cost $$$$ to fix, and since we can't, in good conscience, donate it in this condition, we want to give it to someone who will appreciate it: Someone with a trebuchet. :evil grin:
Free - seriously! - but I want a video of the fling. You can fling it in our back acreage, even - but you'll have to pick up the pieces. (Probably better to fling it at/near a dump - but that's your call!)
Let me know...it's on the front porch now, and that's a little too...white trash for me. :sigh: It needs a new life.
Also, if someone just wants a parlour piano with no plans to play it - come get it. It'd be more fun to see it go "splat!", but.....I'm not adverse to helping out someone's decorating scheme, too.
May I cross post this to a couple of SCA lists?

Don't get me wrong, it'd be fun as heck to watch a piano flying across the fields, but aren't most piano's made of decent wood? Perhaps you might consider finding a local wood worker who would be willing to work out a trade for the wood, and then fling the gutted carcass :>.
I'd love to...but I live in an area that doesn't have a whole lot of craftspeople or hobbiests. Seriously - this place is a creative sink. :sigh: When I started the guild here, we had 5 people show up...I think they're down to 2 or 3 now (it interfered with school/etc, so I quit a few months after I started it; the rest of 'em preferred to meet on a schoolnight in the middle of the week. Oh, well)

Wow, that sucks. I figured you'd know someone through the things you do with the ren faire, or could find a woodworker by advertizing on craigslist or freecycle.
hmmm...perhaps it would make good building material? What chicken wouldn't appreciate a nice piece of wood in their coop? LOL It just seems like such a shame to not use it. My college offers woodworking classes etc for adults and seniors and there was one guy there who built a lovely inlaid table using wood from a piano, which is most likely why I thought of the whole thing. Good luck, it'll sure make a neat caterwaul when it lands!
