Hello all! I am an amateur dulcimer builder who has produced a few well intonated dulcimers with minimal tools (backsaw, mitre box, scribing chisel, yardstick/straight edge, pocket knife) and noticed that the resources for amateur level dulcimer building are limited to very poorly intonated novelties. My first question is whether I have perhaps missed a quality resource for low level builders that details how to build dulcimers. My follow-up question is whether there would be any interest in a tutorial video detailing how to build a cigar-box dulcimer using solely a leatherman multi-tool, as well as a tutorial video on how to build one using only the tools mentioned above? All of the builds shown have cost me 20$ or less; I'd be happy to make one so long as it's not redundant or unnecessary. Cheers!

I for one would be interested. Thanks.

I think most of us would really appreciate your efforts in making those videos, Nate. I love the minimalist approach in all things, especially in handmade instruments.

That is the kind of stuff I love. Please do make a video. Thanks.
