Project Information

Shout out to "Steve Ramsey" of "Wood Working for Mere Mortals" for the idea!

I took his idea and added my own ideas to make this Door Harp Instead of using bolts and nuts I used "zither pins" to tighten the guitar strings. I also used Harpsichord pins for the string anchors. I used Walnut for the face, sycamore for the hollowed body and oak plywood for the back. The strings are guitar string. I designed the bridge using walnut cut to size then carefully filing a grove to inlay a wire for the strings to rest on.

This was not as easy a project as I thought. Lots of neat challenges to work through!!! Now to find the right door to hang the harp on.

Thanks for looking!!!

Another beauty. I may have to watch his video. There are a scare amount of plans or videos on them. I have wanted to make one for a long time and I would also like to play around with making a wind harp.
