I made one for my brother a few years ago using this basic method. I used street sweeper tines I picked up off the street and made the resonator out of a clementines box. Took a while to gather enough tines. Sounded decent, but you have to retighten the grounding screws from time to time. I should start gathering tines to make another.

That's my thought at this point, what to use for the metal tines...
