    Hi from a lifelong beginner

    I retired last year so now the woodchips are falling at a much more rapid rate. Several of us tried to start a woodworking club last year. There was a lot of interest but we just could not agree on when and the majority did not want to get involved but "maybe" would attend....so we gave up. Today I was looking at the info on crank organs and found this site....looks too good to be true! Been at this woodworking thing for about 30 years and still have lots of questions. I'm really excited to find a place that I can ask least ask for a better method...or tool....or "Now what do I do?"

    Welcome Ken!

    The organ build is addictive -- I have put many thing on the back-burner while making the organ...
