Nice job Don. I made a Mountain Dulcimer about three years ago. I play it a little, very little. I want to make a Hammer Dulcimer. Got a lot of infor from the internet. My wife says “learn to play the Mountain Dulcimer first”. After seeing yours I have the urge again, not to learn to play the Mountain Dulcimer, but to make the Hammer Dulcimer. Did you also make the hammers?

Thanks for the favorable comments. I made four of the h. dulcimers. HallTree: yes, I also made some hammers, but I don’t have pictures handy.

I looked at this some time ago, and thought I commented…guess i didn’t. Super nice! I am about 90mi south of you. I believe I visited a few times with one of your woodworking club members who built harpsichords, Peter Tkach.
