CLAVIERS BAROQUES' Bermudo clavichord

Building the Bermudo clavichord...

Here is the case all assembled. The outer case shown here is flame maple but we can make it of about any hardwood you like. We can paint it, carve it, stain it or even gild it.

The pin blocks are oak, there is something about oak, perhaps the tannin, that causes it to grip the hitch and tuning pins better than most woods. For this instrument we used bird's-eye oak. Bird's-eye maple has little round eyes, oak has little winkie ones.
