this is the start of my first dulcimer
just like my banjo#1 i want to learn how to play so i will build myself one.
i’ll build every thing but the strings. the plan is to use walnut for the peghead and cherry for the top . i don’t know about the rest. i’m just making it up as i go along.

Hi Roy,

I missed this one when it was first posted. But it looks like a good start. Have you made any progress on it?
