Documenting the curious world of the hurdy-gurdy.

Birth of a hurdy-gurdy

Thanks to Pieter Lambrechts for pointing out this website, which documents the birth of a hurdy-gurdy - from planks of wood through to the finished article, complete with sound sample.  Made by amateur luthier, Johan Kayaert, this is a detailed photographic essay.  Words are in Dutch, but the process is clear just from the photos.
