Hi. Jim no longer makes dulcimers (retired), but his granddaughter has taken over the craft. Her business is called Hewoud Music. I have met her, an amazing and professional lady. I couldn't find a website for her, but I did find her Facebook page. I messaged her to see if she is making the possum boards. I will let you know what she says in response.

Hi Tutaine, 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.  By-the-way, I live a bit inland in Millinocket, Maine.
