The link above is to another set of homemade dulcimer plans. I have also made one similar to this one.

Attached are the two pages from the book. I made my first Tennessee Mountain Box using these plans as a guide. 

I prefer using the mechanical tuners on my build. 

Good luck on your build.

Hi John , sorry to hear about the problems with your hand , im also sorry that its taken me a while to get back to you , ive had trouble with the new site but as from today im back on again , also computers are great but im 60 now and getting old .... ill use that as my excuse lol. yes Taree is a great with the mountains in the background ..... which is where i grew up but it does have a bit of a reputation , many people cringe when you say your from Taree . As for the m/d what do you play on .? I have been doing it on the cheap I had an old acoustic that had some hard miles on it so I did a cut and shut on it , so to speak , and am almost ready to string it up , hope it works . Well its good to hear from you mate take it easy , see ya .

Hi John, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
