    different gram strength hide glue for center joint?

    Tommy : if you glue wedges at the center of outside edge, you don't need extra clamps. This will make clamping line of force go thru the center of the width. I use Stabil or Bessy heavy duty clamps.

    Steinway pianos to be sold to Chinese state company.

    Other than Steinway, is there a American piano manufacturer in USA? (Not Yamaha or Kawai)

    different gram strength hide glue for center joint?

    Good plate joining depends more on the fitting of the two pieces and glueing method ( how fast, clamping etc) than the strength of the glue.

    Wood with two visible grains?

    Visible grains: because the wood wasn't properly sealed, so some colors penetrated into the summer grains of the wood more than into winter grains.
