Dream Harp Finished by MayEbony Dream Harp Finished by MayEbony
This past weekend - a 3-day weekend because of Australia Day - I was up 3 hours early each day to get to a woodworking workshop. There were plenty of new skills to learn, and many brave steps to take to create it. I've been around wood workers my whole life - both grandfathers, my father-in-law, husband and eldest son, but this is the first time I've come remotely close to creating something myself.
Here are some shots of it being made... Dream Harp Creation by MayEbony and the photo that I used for the feature design inside the harp Valentines Forever by MayEbony
Kindly requested by :iconcreative-focus: :iconharpart: :iconfantasycrafts: and featured by :iconthegalleryofeve: Through my eyes - Feature 1 I've been collecting beautiful artwork created by very creative people I've had the pleasure to meet here on DA, and I've decided to start this series of features full of beautiful things to see, made by people who are very dear to me.
The list is long, so I will be presenting them all in subsequent features, it would be impossible to have them all here.
So please join me, and take a look at these artists' works ... please see them "through my eyes" ... visit their galleries, and I can assure you that you will be delighted!

Absolutely beautiful! I've never done any woodworking, but it's a skill I'd like to pick up someday! I really admire you for this.

Thank you very much Erin :iconrubcheeksplz: It was my first venture, despite a lifetime of family members working with wood around me. Here's a model farm cart that my grandfather made for me [link] He even made the tiny metal parts by cutting the metal shapes from cans. He was a woodturner by trade.
