Have you ever thought about building a musical instrument? Brian Whaley did. With a long musical history and a love of early music, he always wanted a harpsichord but couldn’t afford to buy one. What better way is there to get what you want than to build it? With a few projects under his belt, he wanted to go for it. Luckily, a friend of a friend gave him a very old kit he was never going to assemble. Armed with some basic tools and lots of free time, Brian now has a harpsichord.
As an engineer, Brian continues to delight in building things out of wood primarily using hand tools in his home shop. More of his projects can be seen on his website at http://basementlabs.org.
Come out to see how he did it!
