This was completed just today in my shop. The verse is from the book of Isaiah: "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee." It's all walnut with hand-carved tuning pegs.
Here's an all-cherry Melton type Galax dulcimer that I just completed. It's name is "Glory", and was purchased by a ranch worker near Durango. It has a "racing stripe" down the back, for playing fast tunes!
This is a maple and spruce Galax dulcimer I just finished, of the Raymond Melton type. It's new owner lives in Galax, Virginia of all places. It should feel right at home! It has the 5-Star geared tuners that are so beautiful and easy to use.
