Here is one of the more interesting instruments to emerge from my shop, and I didn’t even work on it. This Celtic wire-strung harp was made by my friend, Aaron Mildenstein, as a gift for his daughter. It took him about a week to build, from start to finish. The only contributions I made were a bit of gamboge, some shellac and dye, and some rather cramped space in which to build.
The varnish had to be quick and simple due to the time constraint, and I really like how it turned out. Have a look:
I’ve taken down some drawings, in case I want to make one of my own in the future.
