I glued up three poplar strips then a pretty walnut strip to make the bow. I've started laying out the neck and found some Sitka Spruce for the top and bottom. It was rejected guitar tops and is about a quarter inch thick rough sawn.
Nice hunk o' walnut. They'll sneak up on you sometimes, so beware. Once I turned my back, and there was this huge black dulcimer in my basement. Had to be 8' long if it was an inch. You can bet I made tracks and got out of there!
