Topic tags/keywords: harp

I’m looking for Celtic Harp making plans, a discussion document or a video source that I can view.

Can one of the LJ members point me in the general direction?

Thanks.

You could start here, http://www.mandolinluthier.com/celtic_harp_construction1.htm I would contact this place and ask questions. I just spent about 10 minutes searching and it will be difficult to find but I will bet there is a forum out there in internet land somewhere. I built a street organ (you can see it in my projects), and got lots of help on a forum. I have found once you find a group of people that are interested in the same thing, they are very forth coming with info and help. A harp certainly would be a fun and interesting project. I love building things that make music although I can play a note myself. That is why the street organ is so great, I just have to crank and the music comes out.

Can’t tell you where to get plans but here’s a video link that will allow you to see the different stages involved in the process. I’d like to try that myself.

Great Places to start – my shop is getting near freezing now, and I’m using the winter months to learn more about Harps and Rocking Chairs, as well as the 100th re-layout of the shop itself.

Thanks, all.

If you can locate a copy of the series “Hands” episode 15 is dedicated to harp making and films the techniques used by a young Peter Kilroy.

The link posted above is for “Ted’s Woodworking Plans” known to be scam/spam.
