Construction Photos

Randy is building the lower case front. The organ case is made of rift-sawn white oak.

The mechanical console chassis fitted in the case front. The four pedals on the right are for the couplers: Great to Pedal, Swell to Pedal, Swell to Great and Swell to Great 16'.

Lyndon is fitting mouldings to the upper case front.

The Swell windchest with its rollerboard, lying upside down on a cart. The rollerboard is pierced so that it doesn’t impede the sound of Pedal pipes located behind it.

The case is set up in the erecting room.

The organ stands at the front of the chapel, to the left of the chancel. This side of the organ does not have façade pipes, since it faces the side wall of the chapel.

Carved details and finials will be fitted at the top of the case.
