Wow! What fun it was putting this thing together. It will bring your family or friends together while you assemble it. And it looks pretty good when it's finished too. Got me wanting their other puzzles to see if they are as much fun to assemble.
I'm so happy with this piece, it's looks so good, the process to put it together was challenging, which is exactly what I wanted. the quality of the wood is great, the instructions are clear and well explained. I ordered the safe and putting it together.
Very challenging, you MUST pay attentions to your every move. To assembly some parts ,you will need small hammer. Guess what? It comes in the box, but you have to assemble it first :) Excellent pieces. Kit comes with everything you might need - strings, wax, etc. I'm extremely happy with this kit.
Another fantastic product. My fingers didn't mind this model having no toothpicks (i just finished up the train model). Also the added hammer tool will be great for future builds.Overall this was a relatively simple build. The only part that was a little challenging was the strings themselves only because i have larger hands and fingers so reaching into the neck to tie them off took some time. Total build time was about 3 hours or so.
The model is pure genius. The mechanical ingenuity is superb. It will take you 4-5 hours to assemble - but no glue, the parts are pre-cut with laser precision, the instructions are clear - and the result is excellent. There are several YouTube videos for fine tuning and tips/tricks. You will definitely want to wrap the strings in cotton fibers (where they touch the tone wheel).
Bought it for my niece for Christmas. She’s a bit young to assemble by herself, but eager to assist me. The assembly and mechanics are simply marvelous! Took me 5 hours to get it together, and a few hours to get the wheel the strums the strings centered (hint: after it was assembled I cranked the wheel and used a chisel to lightly shave the wheel like I was wood turning).Take your time with this, it’s a joy to assemble, gorgeous to look at.
Now I only need to learn how to play a tune. This one was a joy to build and actually plays very well all things considered. It is not going to get me into a concert career but still fun to play with just knowing my hands built it. Just amazing what people can come up with. The engineering alone will have many in awe. Take your time, wax the gears for smooth operation, and you will get a working model worthy of display. One thing I would ask of the designers. Please think up new designs faster because you have me hooked?
