Here’s a simple, three-string door harp. If you’d like to make this design, here's a template you can print out.

Ok, so now you are using wood with bug’s ‘skid marks’ in it? Wow. Great video nonetheless.

I was told recently that ‘Celtic’ symbolizes(amongst other thing) a pattern where the end of a line joins the beginning so there are effectively no ends of the line. Not sure on the validity, just passing the thought along.

That is a relatively simple and pretty dang neat project! I like the video, it’s well thought out and quite clean.
The outtakes at the end, are a sweet finish.
I don’t have a scroll saw yet, so I will have to make some kind of hole pattern.
Thanks for sharing.
Well done!

Clever! Maybe I’ll make one out of a cigar box.

I thought about making one of these a while back, looks like a great job. I like the celtic design, you should make one with the mere mortal emblem on it.

That’s a cool project to make during such a hot summer. Love the outakes. It’s for that reason that I have started making vidos that contain none of my ramblings. I only add voice if absolutely needed.

Take care.

Hi, Steve! I am really proud of you for using your scroll saw in that project! I think you did a great job and the design that you used is awesome. It looked like you were using spiral blades, which I think are kind of hard to do so you really did a better job than I could have on the design. The overall project is great! I always look forward to you Friday night videos! They are a great start to the weekend. You have a good one and thanks for a nice project!

Sheila :)

Nice job Steve! A week off really brought you up a notch. You have time to design one that plays a Christmas carol for Christmas ;-))
