Because why not.
I had a really shallow cigar box lying around. So I naturally made a frame for it, from old copper tubing. Well, I learned how to solder in the process.
Zither pins reclaimed from a dead zither, various pieces of string.
The top part with the pins has a bespoke lathe-turned oak rod within, giving the pins some traction. The top part is not soldered, just held in place by string pressure. So if anything goes wrong with it, it's easy to replace.
Loosely based upon the anglo-saxon style.
