  • So much fun, but delicate

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * all natural material
    * precision made
    * works very well (at right humidity, see bellow)

    Cons:

    * it is not lacquered as shown in pictures
    * comes assembled and without any instructions (but this is probably a Pro!)

    OtherThoughts:

    As it is a natural material (wood) and not lacquered it is __very__ sensitive to humidity changes. In dry conditions it practically falls apart by itself, in humid conditions it is almost impossible to take apart.

    Bottomline:

    I have used some fine sandpaper and orange shellac to finish it and protect it from the humidity changes. It is much better now. You can fine tune the stiffness with strips of clear duct tape at the appropriate places.
