Wow. Just WOW! I'm not even a musician and I want to make one of these! While I am enamored and charmed by the physical mechanisms to generate the sounds, one question comes to mind: if you were to set up a similar device to simply play pre-recorded sounds for each instrument, wouldn't that greatly simplify things? It would seem that it would also allow expansion to many more sounds, solve your midi timing issue, as well as reducing size, fragility, power requirements, etc. It would admittedly greatly reduce the charm.You have made something extremely cool, and even better, you have produced one of the clearest and most elegant instructables I've ever seen. THANK YOU for sharing your creativity!
Your language, and more importantly, your thinking were extraordinarily clear. Great job!
Awesome project! (A minor point- the higher the number on the sandpaper, the finer the grains. You usually start with a low number like 60 or 80 to remove lots of material quickly, and progressively use higher numbers to get a smooth surface.)And I think the "look forward to steps ahead" idea is a great one... it makes it easier to see the whole process. Thanks again for the gift of this project!

Wow. Just WOW! That is ridiculously beautiful. I might just sit and stare at it for the first few days if it were in my home. Very well done!
