Harpsichord rehab 2013

Old kit-built harpsichord rehab for a friend. Rebuilt corners (put a pneumatic pin through my finger and left blood in case ), added corner protectors and L-bracket braces, bolt through case to take wrp out of sounding board (still sounds OK), sanded some keys to stop rubbing, adjusted action of the pectra string pluckers, filled various areas of wood damage, reinforced legs, polished hinges, made a new stick with retaining socket to raise lid, adjusted pins to keep strings from slipping, glued on new damping felt( superglued my fingers in process), repainted (initial crackle finish in yellow sloughed off due to high humidity).
