Junkwood Psaltry

A good friend of mine commisioned me to make a psaltry for him. I had to rush the construction a bit as I only had my workshop for another 2 weeks but the finished result still sounds ok.
The wood is taken from a busted old cupboard, the bridge is the plastic teeth bits you find on industrial sized cling film boxes and the strings are from a stripped washing line.
I can’t play it to save my life, but you can get a good idea of how its meant to be played and how it sounds.
