Odiham lower case in workshop

Nick Hagen has left the firm after working with us for twelve years, to pursue a mid-life change of career.  He has made some significant contributions, including fitting up the machine shop with new machines and an extraction unit for dust and shavings, and working out the logistical challenges of transport and site-work.  He worked as an all-round organ builder, like the rest of us, but his special skill was in the casework and all the decorative techniques involved with that, and the internal support structure.  Over the coming week we will show some pictures of his work, starting with the case and gallery of our new organ at Odiham (2011)
