Looking for string sizes,  standard tuning and string placement. Planning on the fifth fret placement of a tuner. I have built almost seven hundred three string, dulcimer fretted pieces, but am hungry for the sound of the dolcijo. Missing two middle fingers on the left hand and can still play the three string right well, so I am thinking this would be a great fit.

I recently started using a wider than the neck forstner bit as a cheap Wagner safety planer. It works great in applications where the hole left by the tip of the bit is hidden, as in a through the box neck application.

This I do.?  Check out "freedom" by Jack Bowers on the u tube. Sorry for the rambling

What rambling, your good. Watched the video, and you should post it in the Video section.

Maybe place the tuner behind the bridge, and use a nail to hold the string head down below 5th fret.

Short string tuner behind the nut? banjo with a tunneled drone string, a «zither banjo», see https://creekdontrise.com/acoustic/zither_banjo/zither_banjo.htm.
