Once again, playing catch-up with this posting–working on the dulcimer around other projects and diversions–these are snapshots from the past week. I’m excited to get to the point where I don’t stop until I have to let glue dry.
This is the top (soundboard) re-sawn and bookmatched.
The peg head in it’s raw form on the band saw is ready to be cut to shape.
The peg head is shaped and partially sanded.
Jumping way ahead, the back and top are cut and shaped; the peg head and tail stock are mostly finished.
Here are the pieces stacked loosely into place.
Strips are added to the back to support the sides.
