Helped hubby with a harpsichord restringing today and proceeded to slice up my fingers. Typical. Not that I'm doing a lot of typing, but I am knitting, and knitting with sliced fingertips sux.
The harpsichord we are working on is a super little Flemish, not a single crack in the soundboard that I could see. Once we are finished it will have nice big voice and stand up to a choir or instrumental group. It's the same generation as an instrument in our care that has a soundboard with more cracks than a plumber's convention and a lid painting of penguins.
Anyway. This is a small picture of our concert instrument.
