The Busker

The Busker

The sound of the busker playing the musical saw is produced with a hurdy gurdy like mechanism. There are three guitar strings pulled over a large oak wheel and tuned with guitar tuners. A small wooden drawer built into the base of the piece contains resin which every now and then needs to be re-applied to the wheel.

Materials: Lime wood, ash, oak, brass, steel, guitar strings,guitar tuners old brass fixings.
