Harpsichord made from LEGO blocks
This elegant harpsichord was created and built by Henry Lim using an estimated 100,000 LEGO pieces!
It is a working instrument and, with the exception of the music wires, was constructed entirely out of LEGO parts.
This LEGO harpsichord has a 61-note range. It is 6 x 3 ft. in size and weighs approximately 150 lbs.
The music wires exert approximately 325 lbs. of tension so strength and durability were important elements in the design.
