I've been working on various Guitars lately but a friend asked me to make a dulcimer for aChristmaspresent for someone.. So here it is..

Narra back and sides, Walnut soundboard, Walnut fretboard with a Rosewood stripe, Ebony nut and bridge.. with a Shellac finish.. On one of the photos you can see I was playing around with fingerboard attachment it is sloped so as it moves toward the strum hollow it loses contact with the soundboard and has a brace at the end where the strum hollow is... The idea being that it will let the soundboard vibrate more and give a louder sound.. it seems to maybe have worked a bit :-) always hard to tell..
