Dulcimer #2

Postby johnstoneb » Tue Apr 11, 2017 10:51 pm

This is my second dulcimer. Like the first the sides are walnut, the front and back are fiddleback maple. The fretboard is purpleheart. I now need to go back to my first replace the nut and adjust the action to where it is a litle easier to play. I made the soundholes as sailboats as my SIL has a sailboat on the lake.

Very nice! As a liveaboard sailor myself, I really appreciate the stylized sailboat soundholes.

A beautiful dulcimer!
It looks like you've got the hang of dulcimer building now.
