Latest home-built banjo

Posted by rrode on Tuesday, May 28, 2013

I just built a banjo.  Well actually I have been building it for months -- but I just finished it.  The pot is a block rim, maple with a maple burl veneer and rosewood cap.  Brass tone ring.  I purchased the neck on eBay from a Vietnamese supplier.  The neck angle gave me some trouble, but persistence pays off.  And I'm already planning the next project -- this time a fretless with a neck that I'll build.  The walnut rim is already done and I have a nice piece of mahogany available for the neck.  Let's see how many perfectly good pieces of wood  will end up in the fireplace before a finished product emerges!
