Before I start on the next run of dulcimers the shop must be cleaned and organized.
The primary work surface is the workbench where everything from rough planing to final finishing takes place. By the end of a run of dulcimers the bench can get very cluttered.
Other horizontal surfaces are involved as well. Are ceilings considered horizontal surface? If not then they should be.
Luckily help has arrived and I will be back working at the bench shortly.
Coming soon is a new model inspired by a recent commission; a dulcimer with both a standard and baritone fretboard. Should be interesting and I’ll post details as the design and execution develop.
