Crank it Out

If you're someone who enjoys making music, then imagine the wonder of playing it on an instrument that you built yourself. That's easier than you might think, with this extraordinary DIY kit that lets you construct a working model of a 16th century hurdy-gurdy. Beautifully decorated with medieval flourishes, the wooden pieces are easily popped out from sheets of pre-cut plywood and can be assembled without nails or glue. After it's complete, use the included strings and rosin to tune up your new instrument and play a tune. Simply turn the crank to make it play, and press the six buttons along the neck to change the pitch. Whether you play it or display it (or both), it's sure to provide a lasting sense of pride and accomplishment. Made in Ukraine.
