started as an ordinary 1959 Baldwin organ that was being given away…after gutting and remodeling…a laminate top was added, drawers built, a black lacquer applied, distressed and glazed…led accent lighting…brass knobs…boxes built where speakers were for storage, baskets whatever….a cool result for an unwanted organ….

That is a great refit. I have to pay more attention, next time I see an old organ.

As a musician, part of me would rather see the organ restored and played, but nice work on this. Well done. Makes a nice looking desk.
