Fretwork

A few weeks ago,  I was approached by one of our English teachers, Kat Anthony, who wanted to create a photo documentary of the construction of a dulcimer for a class at the University of Florida. She has also agreed to take some shots for me to share in this blog. Kat is an excellent photographer, so all the artsy shots or any picture in which I appear will obviously not be from me.

Adding the frets accurately is of primary importance. A beautiful instrument with imprecise frets becomes wall art.

    Hi Tim!

    This is going to be really cool to read about the progress and view the photos as you build the bass dulcimer !
    I really like the pictures!

    Thanks for doing this for me! I will try my best to share the music with as many folks in Oregon as I can.

    With much glee!
