well it may not be much to look at but I am proud of it, It's only a couple of days old. The back broad is Popluer, the sides are made from white oak, the sound board is 1/8 bass wood, the finger board is made from hickory. the box is 24-inches do to the fact that the popler wood I used was only 24-inces long. All the woods used I already had on hand. I wanted to be sure I could make a dulcimer that was playable before spend a lot of money on wood. And boy is it playable. The only reason I am not posting a video at this time is I am just starting to learn to play.
