  • The Hurdy Gurdy

    A fairly challenging build this time and taking many hours of thought and work.

    Well that most certainly is a challenging project. What you have done so far is beautiful, it will really pop with a finish on it. Where did you find plans for something like this?

      Thanks for that Rolf.

      The plans came from a guy named Graeme McCormack and his company is called Antiquated Strings:

      I am building his Henri III, and the best part is the plans are free, 10 A1 sheets plus a book. There is a catch though in that there are a number of errors in both the dimensioning and the actual drawings and this does create some problems, hence the comment "many hours of thought".

        I agree with Rolf, that does look very challenging.

            It is a musical instrument from the Renaissance period which is also known as a wheel fiddle. The wheel rubs on the strings in the same way as a violin bow does and creates the sound. It is played by depressing keys as seen in the picture of the finished item.

              Rhys you certainly like challenges. I'm waiting for the YouTube video of you playing all these instruments.

                You may have to wait a while,Tim. The building of the instrument is the easy part, it is the playing that is tough and the more so on this one, I suspect.
