I tried to build a traditional dulcimer, but was led astray for the soundholes. I wanted to do nice traditional f holes, but no… It wasn’t meant to be. I went with palm tree soundholes. I hope you like it.

Looks great David…bet it sounds awesome too! The palm trees are very unique compared to traditional f holes, I`m glad you went with them.

Very nice! One of these is on my bucket list to do very soon. Love the scroll head!
