My name is Janneke, I'm from the Netherlands. Recently I completed making my
own harp, a 26 string folk harp. I'd like to start working on a period harp

you have such a plan or a place where they can be purchased? I'm aware of

the web, I've seen period-type harps for sale, but no plans.

Thanks in advance for any helpful hints.

Greetings from the Netherlands,
