How to transport 10 harps!!!

I am faced with a wonderful dilemma: “How does one transport 10 harps?”

Now that these wonderful harps have been donated and riggorus work is going into launching the program, there are logistical hurdles to overcome. Such as, how am I going to transport 10 harps, actually 11 counting an instructional harp, all over the desert valley!

I suppose I am now an official carpenter along with the other career paths that I would never think I would go down.

I have dreamed up the idea to build a box that will go into my car. The La Quinta High School Theatre department, under the direction of Kathy Karstens, are helping me realize this dream.

I spent 3 hours walking around Home Depot and beginning my sketches of this box.

Building Materials for the Harp BoxThank you to my Dad for the use of his pick-up truck!!!

4 Plywood boards, 2 2″X2″ pieces of wood, 10 3/4″X3/4″ poles, a box of screws, 2 packages of corner braces, 4 casters, a piano hinge and a latch for safe keeping of these precious harps.


Here are the first “cuts” for this soon to be Harp Box!Harp Box Building
