Not too often do you find a bookshelf with copies of both Machinery's Handbook and The Organ: Its History and Construction.

In this case I notice that it's the same edition of Machinery's Handbook that I have.  So the owner likely is the same age as me, or graduated from an engineering school about the same time as me.

Sure enough,

Who is this curious fellow? And why do I call him curious?  Because he took the time, as in three years off work, to build himself a wooden pipe organ.  In his house.  For giggles.
Five stops, five ranks, one manual and one pedal set.  Most people would go buy a nice little Yamaha synth.  Well, I would, and did.

So, i think we've established that this guy is a little odd.  But it also must be said... this thing rocks!  I want one!!  Check out the whole project at http://www.rwgiangiulio.com/index.htm .
