My interest in all things wood started when I left school. I became an Organ Builder and joined my fathers business. Of all the things I have made, this is the one I feel most proud of, simply because from design to execution to installation I was mostly in charge. All the internal parts (the action, soundboard etc) were made in our workshop, with the exception of the pipes themselves.
I just found the photo and thought I should post it.

Steven,

That is definitely a dying art . . . both making the organ and playing it. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, It was built for a retiring professor of music here in Belfast. He taught privately one he’d retired and wanted a proper mechanical action instrument to teach on.

Thank you. The casework is almost entirely White Oak and the stringing on the panels is Ebony.

Very wonderful workmanship .It brings me great joy to witness other timeless professions and trades in action.Through this we can witness pure ageless craft .You are so skilled and learned with the timeless ability and quality of this very ancient trade, craft ,art I am not sure what it is called but surely a combination of all three. The workmanship here can only be imagined but the quality of the finished article speaks for itself.

One thing I must say though to be slightly critical.I am glad I don’t live in the flat beneath the professor.Can you imagine being suddenly wakened very early on sunday morning with quite a few hours of l extremely amplified Bach? LOL Alistair
