Years ago, Tom Morgan, a skilled luthier from near Dayton, Tennessee, built me an autoharp of Brazilian rosewood and hundred-year-old spruce. It has since then been my favorite instrument (...and I’ve owned a lot of autoharps.). In July, 2009, Tom brought me some Brazilian rosewood and spruce and asked me to build a dulcimer for him to give to a friend. Here was the instrument that resulted.

Super nice instrument, I love seeing the skill of those who make music come out of beautiful wood. Something that I can’t or have tried.
