You can use a variety of salvaged materials for your builds. Anything goes.

Like the challenge

Amazed at the themes you can come up with just the junk you have hanging around. The thrill of the first notes you hear coming from an instrument you built from scratch. That music will soothe  your soul. Thanks to G.B.Gitty for getting me started.

Great dulcimer Gary. You did a nice job on hollowing. I've never got one as thin as yours. Yours is like the old Komica Pineaple Ukulelles. Made from a solid piece of Koa.

Yeah, that's old Mr Khan, used to live next door to me, he was really shy, he'd always hide in the cellar when he got visitors, then one night I heard a lot of shouting and doors banging and he just disappeared! He's still got my sledge hammer, my drill and my lawnmower too!
