Description

I am a classical organist with a great interest in film, musical and pop music that uses synthesizers. That's why I wanted to build a console where I could play both organ and synthesizer. I could use a classic electronic organ for that, but these are big, massive things that I don't find very attractive looking. There are gaming tables that are less massive and look a bit smoother, but these are very expensive. Reason enough to get to work yourself.

Do it yourself with MDF

I bought four keyboards and completely stripped them. The keys remained. To do this, I made a plywood frame to hold these rows of keys in place. But the visible part: the table top and these sides next to the keys I got from 38 mm MDF that I ordered from OPMAATZAGEN.nl. Nice material! The table top was perfectly tailored. All I had to do was put the legs underneath and it was done. Although: 38mm is thick enough to mill a slot into which a strip of LED lights can be inserted. Beautiful lighting!

The MDF for the side pieces were supplied as a rectangle by OPMAATZAGEN.nl. My wife, who has a figure sawmill, sawed the sawtooth shape. I now have a beautiful instrument with which I can play both classical organ music and the synthesizer!
