For the last month or so as some of you know I have been building a box Dulcimer. It's close to done now. I have been posting a few Pic along the way. here are a few more pics. It's almost ready to play. I just need to do some math to find where to place the frets on the neck. you just can't slap them on anywhere you think you may need. Math and me don't always get a long. The easy part is I have a fret calculator, the the answers it gives me I need to turn into fractions.because I don't know where to find numbers like 2.292"on my ruler. But moving on I was busy this week I had to make an end piece so I would have a place to anchor the strings to bring them up over the bridge then up to the nut. I made it out of some scraps of mahogany and maple Here it is mounted on the box. Also a small scrap piece of wood to show how the neck would look on it.
I am curious, do we have any instrument makers here? We are trying to see if there may be a need for an image gallery for musical instruments. Thanks for any feedback!
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
