Inspired by Rand Moore from Cigar Box Nation, I am taking a crack at building a Dulcimer Stick patterned after his comprehensive write up.
I am building two at once and the necks will be oak with mahogany strips for sides. On one the back will be mahogany and the other walnut. The tops are "iron spruce" from Mario in British Columbia.
Here are some pictures:
The mahogany strips being glued on:
The iron spruce and the walnut thicknessed:
The mahogany back was joined today as well but I can't seem to upload that picture.
Not bad for the first day's work. Stay tuned.
Oh man Tom, thats nice wood. Thanks for posting .
