Reed Organ Restoration

On this page you will find links to posts describing a special project that the Canadian Churchman and the father of the Father have undertaken:  The restoration of an old Mason and Hamlin reed (pump) organ.  We began this project in the summer of 2012 and it is ongoing.  This is our first organ restoration project and we are having fun and learning a lot as we work on it.  Click on the links to check our progress!
