Custom Dulcimer With Two Fretboards In Progress

It’s a beautiful day and my wife is working in the garden. I came out to show her how a custom combination standard and baritone dulcimer is coming along and she snapped this photo:

Maintaining a neat and well-kept appearance while at work is of great importance and a sign of good breeding.

I’ll stop now.
