How To Install Strap Buttons

In this video, Folkcraft owner and luthier Richard Ash shows you how to install strap buttons on a mountain dulcimer. You'll need a drill with a 1/8" diameter bit (for the pilot holes) and a Phillips head screwdriver (Richard uses a power drill with a Philips bit in the chuck, but you can use a "manual" screwdriver if you like).

Folkcraft Instruments stocks strap buttons in three different finishes: gold, black, and chrome. We have both two-inch and one-inch straps available (made in the Folkcraft shop) in a variety of colors.
