Dulcimers from scrap wood.
I have built 5 dulcimers to date, all but one was made from recycled wood. One from some osk baseboards from my wifes grand parents old house,and barn wood. One from an pallet that my wood pellets came on, it was all poplar. The other 2 were made from barn wood (some really nice chestnut) ,and an old walnut dresser that was no longer usable.
