Traditional Hourglass Style Mountain Dulcimer Plan

Item Number 2310153

Regular price $10.00

If you have ever wondered how to build your own mountain dulcimer, then you need our building plans for a traditional hourglass-shaped mountain dulcimer. Our full scale pattern shows you the exact dimensions and shapes for the fingerboard, soundboard (top), braces, back, tail block, fingerboard, fret spacing (this plan shows a 27" VSL), bridges, string spacing and so much more. Suggested wood types are also provided. This hourglass dulcimer plan will get you past the hard part of building an instrument, and right into the fun part - cutting, gluing, and finishing!
 
Please note: The various wood parts that we offer are appropriate for use with this dulcimer plan, but you may find that some dimensions don't match exactly. If you use the wood parts that we sell (the same parts we use in our own shop for building Folkcraft and FolkRoots dulcimers!) you may find it necessary to adjust this dulcimer plan to fit the wood perfectly. These mountain dulcimer plans are intended to offer you a starting point and a set of guidelines for the instruments you will build.

Hourglass Dulcimer Plans

I like the fact that these plans are full size and clearly laid out.I have used the teardrop dulcimer plans to build a dulcimer and look forward to building a traditional hourglass style also.

Martin Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar Plan, With Venetian Cutaway

The Martin Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar Plan, With Venetian Cutaway is very good and reasonably priced. I like the Venetian Cutaway. It was what made me want this guitar plan. I am making patterns and gathering the materials for this guitar now.

The Epiphone "Spartan" Model Archtop Guitar Plan is very good and reasonably priced. I'm very satisfied with how detailed it is. I'm making my patterns and molds from it very soon.
