Remember that Appalachian banjo I asked for help with? Well, I finished it yesterday! Here are some pictures.
I used thumbtacks to attach the skin, and decided to not use any glue. I waxed the metal coffee can tone ring. Made the bride from a piece of maple. The action is just a hair under 1/8 inch!
