« Part 2: Diving in Again: Mountain Dulcimer Part 3 of Adventures in Lutherie series Part 4: Miter box for fretting »

While working on the dulcimer for my wife, I cut the fingerboard too short. It’s okay, I have plenty of wood and it was still just a stick with no real crafting invested in it.

But figured I’d put it to good use. I cut the peg head into one end as ‘practice’ for the real thing. So now I have this fingerboard with a peg head cut into it. It’s too narrow for a cigar box guitar. Looking around the internet, I think I can use it to make a 4 string ‘tenor’ banjo. That should be fun too, but it won’t get done until after Christmas for sure. I have an old cookie tin I’ve been saving for just such a project.

It’s fun when you can take a—- and turn it into a +++ and have fun doing it.
