Although I am to perpetuate traditional construction methods, I use modern techniques in particular the computer to visualize every aspect on the construction process.

All my harpsichords have the same structure :

- The case and lid are made of poplar.

- The frame and base are made of fir.

- The soundboard is made of spruce " coupée sur quartier" divided in four.

- The jacks are in pear tree and the tongues are made of hornbeam.

- One exception however: the keyboard are made of plywood of beach for improved mechanical stability compared to linden/lime with flat keys and sharp keys made of walnut and hornbeam.

- The base is screwed on.

- The guilding is done with gold dust or gold leaf( on request).
