Harp Sound Hole Jig

I constructed a jig to cut the sound holes in the shell utilizing a plunge router. Worked effortlessly to create perfect sound holes in a matter of minutes. Now I need to make the base and soundboard.

Harp Shell Nears Completion

The stave harp shell that I am building is nearly completed. First the ends were trimmed to match the base and cap. Then three braces were constructed and epoxied into place. Finally the shelf for the soundboard was installed.All that remains is installing several screws to the stricture for added strength, and to cut out the sound holes.
