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.
