    Re: DULCIMER - Plans

    Here is a dulcimer that my wife bought at a Craft show in Statesville. The guy lived in Florida. I don't think that this is a regular dulcimer. I dont remember what type of dulcimer that he said it was. But it is a beautiful piece of art. I hope the picture shows up.

    Built a dulcimer once. Copied a friends. Bought frets, strings and tuning pegs from Stewart MacDonald. Have fun.

    Re: DULCIMER - Plans

    I watched a tv show on diynet where they built a dulcimer.
    go to DIY Network : Home Building, Home Improvement, Hobbies, Crafts, Gardening & Woodworking Projects and Videos : DIY Network search for handmade dulcimer. you may have to go to hand made music on the same site. they have a print version of the show and a set of blue prints that you can download free> I did and they look to be fine
    good luck with it
