Post a picture of your new banjo or better yet a sound clip as well. I've always enjoyed your music.

Wow you guys! That's a heck of a banjo. I want to hear it played :-) You've done beautiful work.

Lori - This is fantastic news enjoy making and playing your new banjo. What is your scale length going to be?
You might have something sharp that caused the string to break. Did it break by the bridge or tail piece and which string broke? I can tune my nylguts up to where ever I need them to go. I do not use a capo anymore. Even the fifth string can stretch to A. That is why I carry two banjo's - one I tune in A & D and the other C & G.

Way to go, Lori! I also have a Shopsmith, and it has come in really handy for my banjo-making, especially the horizontal drill set-up.
You'll be making more, for sure!

Very creative work. You have done some unique carving for sure. The peg head looks like a cat? I am imspired, but still afraid to build my own.

An inspiration to all of us who want to build our own banjo. Beautiful.

Sweet banjo, Lori. Wow! That settles it. I've been wanting to build a similar banjo for a while now. Actually a couple. Guess I need to get on it.

Babies and banjos are good. Keep up the brilliant work.

Very nice work Lori. Now with a Shopsmith, there are so many things you can make on own. Have fun.

Very Nice Lori! When can I commission you to make me one?

Lori, it seems that everything you turn your hand to you almost instantly become a master at! You're an inspiration and, for an old guy like me, somewhat depressing as well!

Really great work! I like the look of that.
Looking forward to hearing your new band, too.
