Building a Home Grown Busker Organ
By Julie Porter

For readers of the MMD who have not been following my daily blog at , the busker organ I started a little over
a week ago made it's debut at the Ardenwood MBSI meeting this weekend,
as well as some other events on Sunday.  Everything was done except the
pipes.  I was able to connect a wind gage to the reservoir and show the
organ producing a steady supply of pressure.

I want to take a moment and thank all the MMD readers who helped with
this project.  It came close and was a lot of fun.

I am looking forward to continuing the work on the pipes and the
rest of the work needed to complete the organ, that I like to call the
"one week wonder", although the use of found and recycled parts is the
real point of making the organ a bit on the "green" side.
