Being the impatient type, I ordered the 17/16 Hammered Dulcimer Plan as a PDF download. Overall, I am very satisfied with the level of detail and precision of the plans. I have a really good printer (which is needed) which made this format acceptable for me. You will also have to tile the different printed pages together, but that is not too difficult. An alternative would be to take the file to a big-box office supply/printing store and get the plans printed out on one sheet. I'm in the process of construction now, but overall, the plans are doing what they set out to do.
