Steinway is a great piano but they make a terrible finish. Is it possible to get my piano refinished in my home? I live in San Francisco, CA.

Not likely in your home. You might be able to get it repaired, depending on the existing finish, but even then, it would probably be better to have it done in a shop.

Why do you think they make a terrible finish?

Can you provide a few pics? What are some points that you do not like?

They have used Wurdack lacquer for a long time. It is a hot application in four coats. Pretty thick (for lacquer) but then hand ground down and polished.
