I'm building a mountain dulcimer with my niece over the holidays using this kit from

They attach the fretboard after attaching the back and soundboard to the sides and want you to put a clamp in the middle of the fretboard using the sound holes. We want to make our own sound holes in the shape of her dog's paw print (rather than making a large hole and gluing in a laser cut rosette) so I'm hoping to come up with a source for light duty clamps that will fit through a small hole.

I'm open to other ideas about how to clamp it too. Once we have a plan then I figure we'll design the sound holes to suit the clamps.

Here's our inspiration, from Tim Stuart at Nature Coast Dulcimer Works.
