Harpsichord Made of Legos

Amazing. A working harpsichord made entirely of legos. Wow.

Next a piano? Not likely. "Originally, upon thinking about the potentials of making a LEGO musical instrument, I had hoped to reproduce a piano, but ditched the idea due to the enormous tension involved (40,000 lbs.)--there's a reason why pianos have steel frames. "

Hi Jack,

I can't imagine the hours of work and thought that went in to it.
