MrMash shared a handy tutorial showing how to make a wooden thumb piano (kalimba) using strategically-placed popsicle sticks, a few screws and a wooden base. When Mash found that his first version wasn’t musical enough for him, he made a new kalimba with longer popsicle sticks. He also elevated the notes of a piano’s black keys, which made translating his piano skills much easier.
A better version of the popsicle stick piano. Or a wooden kalimba if you will.
