Teardrop dulcimer plan

Plan was extremely helpful in building my first teardrop dulcimer after building several hourglass dulcimers. I did spend a considerable amount of time converting the dimensions to fractions.

Plan Sheet Quality

The plan layout is exceptional…. no if’s buts or ands… I have not found an instruction book for dulcimer construction, so one of those would be great too. Having made several ukuleles, I’m not completely helpless, but for a first timer, instructions would be fantastic.

Good plans

These are very nice hourglass dulcimer plans. Plenty of detail to work with.
I would very much like to see a couple more fret spacings than just the 28". Perhaps a 27, 26 and 25" spacing list for those of us with smaller finger span would be a wonderful addition. Thank you
