So there I was…in Alabama attending a school for 4 months and needing to do something to occupy my time. I had already made another dulcimer (mountain style in an hourglass shape) and so I decided to make one that looked like an Irish Bozouki…This is the result.
I resawed some cherry for the back and sides to 1/8” and used some 3/4” cherry for the neck and headstock. The fingerboard is walnut and the soundboard is Sitka Spruce with some herringbone inlay. I used some curly maple as edge binding. It sounds pretty good…excellent projection with a good balance of bass and treble.
I hand rubbed with 100% Tung Oil (3x coats) and buffed in beeswax.
