I’m just curious, are there any luthiers on LJs?
If yes, do you do it as a hobby?
Personal use?

I am surprised you’ve not got more responses as I am sure there are a number of folks who make various instruments.

I have made 2 dulcimers, only one works. The pin holes on the first did not have a sharp enough angle to hold the string under tension. I learned way more about music theory than I will ever use. I do not even play a hand saw! PS- That is not my mess in the background!
