Harp

By Maria–Christina  S.

I took a piece of a MDF wood 0,55 Χ0, 47 cm and a thickness of 0.10 mm.

I drew with a pencil the draft of the harp, on the wood. I took the saw and cut all around the drawing. Then I took fine sandpaper and rubbed the edges to leave the corners of the cut and be nice to hold.

I wiped it with a cloth well, painted on and let it dry. I repeated the same with transparent varnish.

For the notes I needed 8 strings placed so that they are equally spaced between them. I put them vertically fastening them with screws to be able to be tuned. I based the harp on the MDF wood 0,25 X0, 25 cm and a thickness of 0,5 cm.
