Has anyone run across this? I saw it tonight and thought, wow! Raphi Giangiulio is building his own pipe organ, completely out of wood. Take a look at the photograph, it's beautiful.

Fascinating how only 1 manual + helper changing simple stops (+/- the octave, or Bourdon) between phrases still give the intended 'dialogue' in Bach's Toccata and Fugue BWV565.

Loved the builder's own presentation.
The first example where I heard clearly that adding some 4th harmonic (2 octaves up, or 2' Doublette) is essential to get The Organ Sound.
