  1. First Strum Stick... Lesson Learned

    It all started one fateful evening while strolling through youtube watching woodworking videos. On the side bar I spied a video titled "make a strum stick". 5 Videos later I started making a materials list. I spent the next few days re watching videos while spending my lunch breaks at work...
  2. Dulcitars/Strumsticks musical instruments

    My last music-oriented project proved very gratifying and instructive. In the meantime, my son developed a growing interest for guitars and asked me one for his birthday. Back then, I was following woodgears.ca's ukulele build while realizing that this would certainly be too involved a project...
  3. Stick Dulcimer

    http://thewoodknack.blogspot.com/2014/08/stick-dulcimer-or-cbg-strumstick.html Update: My daughter playing the dulcitar I don't play guitar but I love making things, especially noisemakers. The process for building cigar box guitar (CBG) type instruments is well known and covered extensively...
  4. Strum Stick

    I have always wanted to make a stringed instrument and I figured that this would be a good start. Made from a walnut log with a cedar top, 3 strings that is based on a dulcimer. It was a very fun project that turned out well with a good sound. Now for the hard part, learning to play. I have...
  5. Strumstick or Dulcitar or Pickin' Stick (w/ video)

    I have seen this instrument called a Strumstick, a Pickin' Stick, and a Dulcitar. I think they all work because nobody has heard of any of them in my circle of friends. One day I was searching the internet to see how big a backpacking guitar would be and if I would be interested in carrying...
  6. Dulcitar/Strumstick

    My brother used to play guitar, but now no longer has the time to maintain his skills. I found these "Strumstick" guitars online that are designed in a way so that no matter what fret your finger is on, you are always in the same scale so all the notes work together. I gathered as much info as...
  7. Bubinga Firewood Strumstick

    I just finished another strumstick, this time with a piece of bubinga which was mostly sapwood and sent to me as packing material in some guitar sets I bought a few years ago. You just see a few flashes of the pink that bubinga is known for. The fretboard is a piece of tulipwood, split and...

  9. Strum stick / Dulcitar

    Santa finally finished! This was my first attempt at building any type of musical instrument. I thought that they would make good gifts for my two young children and my brother in law's two kids. I ended up with seven because that's where the wood ran out. The necks, body sides and backs are...
