The Good Doctor's Hobby

I envy folks who have the patience and skill to work at something as grand as rebuilding a piano

"A podiatrist with a practice in Manhattan, Shulman began tinkering with pianos about four years ago. Originally drawn to the instrument by a profound family loss, Shulman's passing interest will soon become a business. Piano restoration, which Shulman says closely resembles his "real" job as an orthopedic foot surgeon, has introduced the foot doctor to a new world of copper strings, minute screws, plastic flanges and felt hammers."

The rest is here.
