My photo

shows bicycle spokes being used as tension hooks. It's an idea I got from Yoppari and Vintagewells.

Anyway, I put the extras SOMEWHERE, and have shuffled a lot of stuff around, into and out of storage, upstairs and down, while trying to sell the house.

Now, I am wanting to use them on a banjo I am building. But, to my horror, I cannot find them.

That's the horror, and, until I find them, my banjo project will remain unspoken.

Hey Mike,
 A few months ago I bought a new small sander.I hadnt used it for a couple of weeks due to my shop being unheated and the cold weather.Yesterday I built from junk parts a wood stove out of a 55 gal barrel.Today I fired it up  and enjoyed an afternoon  working on 2 banjo projects I've been trying to  finish.I reached for my now  fairly used sander and it wasnt there. I looked all over the shop and couldnt find it anywhere.
 Finally I used my bigger sander to get most of the finish sanding done. When I reached over on the  other workbench for another tool I had to reach over the sander I couldnt find a few minutes before,,,,,,It was right on the front of the workbench under my nose all the time,,,,,
 Feel any better? lol

That doesn't look half bad.  The drum circle gives it some character as well.

Tahnks for the nice comments.

THAT banjo is done, sounds great, was delivered to Greg Hansen, age 8.

It's the NEXT banjo that I can't find the spokes for.

Heh, Mike,

I can't wait to see that next banjo. You'll find those spokes, I believe. Man, if I could find all the "lost items" around my shop and home, I'd have more work than I cn do.

Don't "forget" to post pictures of your new project, now!
