Walnut dulcimer kit review

The quality of the kit is good, but my husnand struggling in cutting out the top and bottom. The utility knife is not working for him. It would have been helpful to have a video but we are persevering on.

Hello, from Japan. This is my second DIY dulcimer. The kit contained pretty beautiful wood material, such as a dead straight finger board, beautiful book matched and figured cherry top. I modified head shape, added abalon fret markers, 1.5 fret, kerfing, back brace and gecko shaped sound holes. Finished with Watoco oil narural twice and polished with bees wax. Speaking modestly, this is a beautiful dulcimer kit and beyond the price.

Folkcraft Black Walnut Teardrop Dulcimer Kit

This kit has everything you need to make a nice teardrop dulcimer except supplies like glue, sandpaper and finishing products. I took my time and made it over the course of a week, but it could be done quicker. The instruction sheets could be improved, so they should be read thoroughly before you start, with common sense applied, and you can call for clarifications if needed, as I did. It comes with all the parts you need, but of course the end product depends on your skills and patience. I did enjoy building it. I think anyone would benefit from the experience.

Just finished Step 7 a few minutes ago. Kit builds easily and parts fit well.

Good product

I bought the kit for my Granddaughter, She likes woodworking and music so it was a special project. The kit was good and we did get it done. It turned out fine and she really enjoyed putting it together. The only negative I have is the instructions. The were not easy to follow and not complete. I think the instructions could have been more detailed and improved. A video would really be nice. The gluing was the hardest part. I don't think we put enough glue on the sides. the kit also could use a template for the sizing of the project.
