Cherry Dulcimer Walking Cane

I have started a Cherry Dulcimer that will also double as a walking Cane . Here are several pics showing the progress of the build . Below is the headstock beefed up to double as a cane handle .

Below is the back layout and reinforced .

The next pic shows the headstock after its been sanded and shaped . Note it has a back strip in the tuner area for additional strength . It will make it a smidgen harder to string , but should make it stronger.

The next pic shows the dulcimer glued together and the F holes placed and cut.

This one is solid cherry , top back sides all cherry . I'm not sure how it will sound but hopefully good.

The headstock mounted and ready for the walnut trim and a little idea I have cooking in my mind for the next post .

Thanks for stopping by . Hope you enjoyed your short visit.
