Though I took several images of George I was also interested with the machines they used so George took me back into the machine shop. Here he is using a band saw with a jig to trim to fit the top layer of wood.
I hope you all enjoyed viewing this series as I had taking them. Thanks for viewing. (Enlarged view preferred)

One would almost wish that there were a sound attached to this series since I would imagine with the cutting and shaping of the wood for the dulcimer that it must have been quite noisy. You have covered the construction and craftsman well.

This is stunning, and so interesting to see since I have one of these fine instruments. Will have to post a shot of it soon.

Thanks for the wonderful tour - one that I don't think I would ever be afforded the opportunity to view. It's so obvious you are with a master craftsman doing what he does best. Your DOF pulls me in to view the most intricate part of this process with pin point details. I hope George realized he was in the presence of a fine arts craftsman behind the camera also.

I agree with Diane, you are also a craftsman behind the camera in every image you capture, no matter the subject. Thanks Gary for a very interesting series of superb work from both, you and George.

A great series and shows your versatility; whatever you choose as a subject, the work is always first class in my eyes.
