Thought I would start a separate thread to keep all my posts together as I go along.
Spring has sprung and the shop is warmer so now I have finally gotten a real start to building my new 31 note organ.
I've had this Cherry wood laying around in my shop for quite a few years with no real plan for it so I decided to cut it up to see what it looks like. It was pretty rough sawn lumber when I got it with many twists in the boards. Probably not good for any project very large but thought it might make for some nice looking pipes for this organ.
Once cut up it looked like it might have some pretty wood inside.
Started re-sawing some of the boards to thickness last week.
Ended up with a pretty good little pile ready to run through the thickness planer to get them down to just 1/8" thick.
Got the stack run through the planer tonight. Next will be to get them cut to the appropriate widths for each pipe size.
I'm only getting about 1 hour each evening to work on this but I'm committed to doing something each night to help me move forward on this project. More to come.
