The front casework truly is a handsome piece of art. Quartersawn white oak with shellac, hand carved basswood pipe shades, curved crowns and impost, with details galore.
First time lapse video of New Ulm's casework installation.
Today, the first of 35 facade pipes went in, along with the incredibly beautiful handcarved basswood pipe shades by Arne Bortnem.
Lower casework is going in today.
The majority of the case work is stained and finished. It is likely that we will see the upper case, pipes, and gold shades in place for Easter.
The guys finished a full week of installation today with two more wind reservoirs, swell and positiv whittle tree boxes, additional work throughout the case.
Today has been a busy day putting up side supports and walls! The underbelly of the Choir and Great Divisions are installed with hundreds of bolts, securing muffler boxes and intricate wiring panels to the windchests. Toe boards and walk boards are installed while the shell goes up around it.
Installation day 2 was filled with hoisting floor frames, windchests, and other materials to the choir loft. A steel frame had be hoisted to the ceiling to allow a chain hoist to assist heavier items, such as the 800 lb Swell chest.
