by Michael J King

These are my plans for a three string Jouhikko/Bowed lyre 

Current tuning: (left to right) 
 
  f Bb d# with the central string the lowest pitch.

this is the same pitch as Pekko Käppi on his youtube tutor video here:


The standard tuning is half a step lower which you can also use

These can be made from smaller pieces of wood or carved out of the solid.
 
These plans and the other 2 string bowed lyres and 6 string Welsh Crwth are also to be found on my 2015 Lyre Making CD in the extras folder,
