Making of a Marchand 1775 hurdy-gurdy

British luthier Nicholas Nourse has an interesting page illustrating his construction of a hurdy-gurdy based on the Marchand 1775 hurdy-gurdy.  He is also offering full-size drawings for sale to allow other experienced craftsmen to make this instrument.   More here.  He has posted a similar page illustrating his construction of a hurdy-gurdy based on the famous Hieronymous Bosch painting, after plans by Marcello Bono - see here.
