While I had nothing to do on a summer day I decided to make a lounge chair for my parents out of a pile of scrap lumber. I had been eyeing this particular pile in the garage for a few days. Anyway I decided to use a bunch of 2x12's to create a spine, out riggers, and seating surface. I found out you could pluck the wires and since they were all different lengths, they would give you different notes. I then used eye hooks to secure the wires, so they could be tuned.
