I have a dream......

Posted by 5strings3picks1banjo on Sunday, March 16, 2008

I have a dream of becoming a luthier. I am 40 now, maybe a late starter but I'm ready for the challenge. I dreamt I was building a banjo this week, maybe this means I'm on the right track. I have built block rims and bridges already and am happy with the progress. I am ready to start my neck and inlays. This will be the hardest thing for me. I purchased some hard rock maple, ebony fret board, fret wire, headstock overlay, MOP and pre-cut inlays. Now that I have spent my money I have to go through with it. I will post pictures of everything when it arrives.

Dreams are meant to be made. You can be if you want to be.

Good luck
