Teardrop Mountain Dulcimer Plan

Item Number 1310001

Regular price $20.00

If you have ever wondered how to build your own teardrop shaped mountain dulcimer, then you need this plan sheet. Our full sized pattern shows you the exact dimensions and shapes for the fingerboard, soundboard (top), braces, back, tail block, fingerboard, fret spacing, bridges, string spacing and so much more. Suggested wood types are given as well as alternate peg box/scroll head patterns. This plan shows you everything you need to build your own teardrop dulcimer!
 
Please note: The various wood parts that we offer are appropriate for use with this dulcimer building plan, but you may find that some dimensions don't match exactly. If you use the wood parts that we sell (the same parts we use in our own shop for building Folkcraft and FolkRoots dulcimers!) you may find it necessary to adjust this dulcimer plan to fit the wood perfectly. The intention of this dulcimer building plan is to offer you a starting point and a set of guidelines for the instruments you will build. This plan is a physical product, printed on paper. It is not currently available as a PDF or download.

my ukulele is well on its way. Your blueprint was exactly what I needed. I recommend that to anyone very detailed.

Simple Plan with modifications

I ordered the Simple Dulcimer plan. My woodworking skills are moderate, but I was able to adapt it to a shorter fret board that I also got here and use a scroll head. All the things I got from Folkcraft worked and looked good. The bottom, sides and fret board are walnut; the top is cedar. It plays and sounds good.
