Here's my 'Wombat Dulcimer' built by friend Roy out of highly figured Tasmanian Blackwood (similar to Koa). The fingerboard is rosewood.

It sounds good, Peter. Nice'n sweet and clear bright tone all the way up the neck. Roy built his first out of Tassie myrtle. It was lighter and more resonant but not as 'clean'. Nice dulcimer tho.
The wombats don't seem to contribute anything to the tone.

Very pretty, Rob. I'm a devoted dulcimer player. Have 3 and play mostly fingerstyle in DAD or CGC tuning (lower is better for my voice). What style do you play? Two of mine are 4 string and one is 5 string. I can play just about most of what I can play on guitar. It's a much more versatile instrument than many people think.
