Traditional Hourglass Style Mountain Dulcimer Plan

Item Number 2310153

Regular price $11.00

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.

Great teardrop dulcimer plans

I picked up a partially assembled Folkcraft dulcimer kit. Unfortunately, it had limited paperwork. Folkcraft had this full size plan available. It has all the information I need to correct issues and build this box of wood into the fine instrument it was meant to be. This should be a very nice winter project. The next project will be to learn to play it.

3 String Diatonic Hurdy Gurdy Plan

Arrived in a timely manor in good condition. Sufficiently detailed that I believe that I can make a Gurdy from them. Satisfied customer.

Violin and bow plan

I received the violin and bow plan as ordered. The delivery was longer than I expected, but in times of Covid pandemics delays can be expected.
The violin plan is good , comprehensive and in some detail , covering both finger board and tailpiece. However the bow plan is light on detail , with no information regarding the tip mortise or it’s dimensions.
On the whole a satisfactory buy at a very reasonable price.
