Music is that much sweeter when it’s from an instrument you made yourself! Put your woodworking skills to the test with this roundup of musical instrument plans, broken down into strings, wind, percussion and ancient/period instruments. Not everything out there is a proper plan… sometimes it’s more of a photo essay, sometimes just drawings. When possible and available I included resources that should help out all you amateur luthiers!

And yes, there should be enough plans here for quite the orchestra ;)

If you know of any free instrument plans, please let me know in the comments – I was hoping to find free lap dulcimer plans but couldn’t scour any up in my searches…
