Hi dad, 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.

Thank you everyone! I'm just finding my way around. There is a lot to discover, and I bet I end up making another dulcimer anyway so can apply whatever I pick up here. I'll try find the ducimer making group now. If pic upload works, here's a quick preview of the back: sycamore with ebony string, currently thicknessed around 2.5mm will end up 2.3 I think.

Welcome Soledad to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined. This is a great place to learn a lot and make lots of dulcimer friends. Regarding your current build you may consider creating a discussion in the Dulcimer Making group.
