  1. All new Binary Keyboard..... 2010 model

    Introducing the all new 2010 model of Hemlock Co.'s binary keyboard. I made this for a friend at work who has been kind enough to take me under his wing during this last year. He is a software developer in our department who is highly respected for his quality of work. I approached him asking...
  2. Pullout Writing desktop

    The other sister now needed something also! So I removed the busted keyboard pullout and replaced it with some hefty slides and supersized it for a writing / project surface. The old pullout was on cheap slides and made from particle board like the rest of the desk, so it pretty quickly fell...
  3. Oak Desk | Corner Unit | Custom

    This is a Double Pedestal Corner Desk that was completed in March 2009. It is a two pedestal corner desk with a hutch. The right pedestal has a standard file drawer with two regular box drawers and then a CPU storage section added the side. The left side has two lateral file drawer. On all...
  4. End grain Keyboard

    This end grain keyboard was made for my son the musician and music educator. I used the plan from the December 2016 WOOD magazine using maple, walnut end grain, and wenge veneer between the white keys. In an earlier version when I made the keys from two different boards they absorbed the finish...
  5. Full sized piano...

    ...box. This was going to be a "quick, fun and easy" project - everyone knows pianos are dead easy to build, right? Well, it was fun, but it was neither quick nor easy. I did the research so it would be "anatomically correct" and discovered that all those gaps for the black keys were actually...
  6. End Grain (Key) Board Collection....

    Not sure why, but this idea has been bouncing around for a long time now. It seemed simple enough since a keyboard is just basic lines….. I did a little research to try and figure out what the standard sizes of the keys are…..and that's a can of worms, so i picked some numbers and took pencil...
  7. Writing desk with hidden piano storage.

    Finished the "Norman" keyboard desk today. It's a fully functional writing desk that opens to house a Nord Stage 3 inside. Transforming furniture is always a challenge because of proportions, in this case, maintaining two different usable levels. In this case, a playable height for the...
  8. Keyboard wrist rest / tray thingamabob

    The risers on the back of my keyboard at work broke off ahile ago, so I had been using general office fodder to lift the back of my keyboard to a comfortable angle. It was ugly, and anoying, as the keyboard constantly shifted as I would type. I saw a custom made wooden wrist rest on reddit...
  9. Potions Pot & Pestle

    White Mullbery mortar and pestle (6"diameter x 4"height x 1/8"thick) finished with lacquer.
  10. Maple desk w/ Cherry Accents | Custom

    This is a desk that was apart of the last project I posted: "Maple Murphy bed with Cherry Accents". Sometimes you find a unique piece of material hidden in a bundle of wood. That was the case on this one. As I was pulling the material I came across one with a very cool grain. Don't know how...
  11. miniature Beckwith pump organ

    This is a project from about ten years ago. It is a replica of a pump organ that has been in the family for almost 100 years. My sister had it for several years, but got one that was in better playing condition. I got the old one so it would stay in the family, but wanted my sister to have...
  12. Piano Becomes a Shelf

    My wife was given a "used" player piano from a co-worker. I have always believed that there is a reason something given away for nothing, and "gift" was no exception. The only catch to getting the piano was that she needed to have it picked up in Philadelphia and brought back to Lebanon (about...
  13. Clavichord completed

    Well, this is the final product of my labors. First of all let me apologize for stopping my posts on it's construction. The offer of my first book was too good to pass up. First thing you probably noticed was the color, right. Well, back then they were often painted this way. I liked the color...
  14. Another bowed keyboard

    This is more of a prototype than anything, made from 2×4's and plywood. This is another attempt to produce sound by mechanically bowing something (in this case tuned brass rods) and selecting notes with a keyboard. This instrument only has 24 notes, the reason so few is, it produces vibrations...
  15. Harpsichord, a small one

    I thought I would save what I think is the best for last (well, almost last). I built this in 2001 before I had a digital camera so I don't have any construction pictures. This was built from a set of plans I got a long time ago, and it took a while to get all the supplies together to build it...
  16. Suit and Tie Cutting (Key) Board

    First I have to thank Jeff (JL7) Loken for his inspiration ("push forth and conquer") and his assistance in providing his measurements for this project. (Thanks so much for your help Jeff). The sapwood in the walnut created a "bowtie" effect and I decided to leave it. I'm calling this my "Suit...
  17. Keyboard Cutting Board

    First, I would like to thank Jeff (JL7) for his detailed dimensions for the keyboard components. This cutting board is a birthday gift for my daughter. I made a few small adjustments that would allow me to use walnut and maple scraps I had on hand. The overall dimensions are approximately 13" x...

    My third bowed keyboard After nearly 2 years of planning and other projects…I am FINALLY starting another bowed keyboard; a streichklavier. It is basically a bowed harpsichord, similar in concept to the wheelharp project I posted earlier. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/3563 I realize I never...
  20. Blogs
    Over my head... I was inspired by the Steampunk keyboards where people have stripped the keys off of vintage typewriters and modified existing keyboards with them. I really like the look of brass and wood, so I thought I would make my own keys of brass and take the circuit board out of a...
