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.

Review for Ukulele Plan

I have not as yet put the plan to use, since I am a bit behind in my instrument building, and I am finishing off my workshop after a move, but the plan looks like it will work well for me when the time arrives, as it is drawn in very good fashion.

Wonderful Plans

They're so wonderful that if you ever lend them out, they never get returned... but hey, you can always buy another. I'm on my third set. Fantastic plans, wonderful vendor! BUY THESE PLANS! Disclaimer: I'm not a paid affiliate nor have I had my arm twisted to make these comments.
