A few years ago I was in Hillsville Va. at the big flea market they have there and I saw this guy selling what he called a “Woodrow”. It is a takeoff on the Mountain Dulcimer. I have since made a couple of dozen in my own design. Here is one made from a couple of tin pie pans. It is fretted like a Dulcimer, but played a little different. It uses the Diatonic scale.
And one made completely of wood.
This is a Dulcimer I made using Cedar and Cypress.
