October's Dulcimer completed

Postby Bob Gerard » Mon Nov 27, 2017 2:33 pm

I finished October's Dulcimer- Cherry bottom/sides and Black Walnut top. It is a three stringer and will be going down to Alabama in a little while. It sounds lovely- I greatly thinned the wood top and botom boards and made the fretboard hollow (3/4 of it anyway).
