Welcome Rojo to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined. This is a wonderful community of friendly people who are always interested in helping others along on their dulcimer journey. Looking forward to your activity on this forum

many thanks for the welcome. I'm struggling with the layout and working of the site but it's due to my ineptitude is suspect.

l've come to dulcimers very recently having made a couple for strumsticks and been impressed by their simplicity. 

Im at the point of making sound holes which is nearly paralysing me into inaction. I may well post photos of progress.
