Short Scale Appalachian Dulcimer

Appalachian Dulcimer

Originally intended for my daughter, this instrument is the first attempt at planning and building by ourselves.

Well, we had never bent wood or sawn a fingerboard before. I think that this instrument was the real starting point for the following projects. If this dulcimer had not succeeded, there probably would have been nothing more than just one resonator guitar.

Working only with wood for the first time was also a very exciting experience - along with this musical instrument, a band saw also moved into our workshop - top, bottom and also sides are cut with it - what an adventure!
