A while back I posted a long series on "Building the Crow banjo". Recently, one of our members--Rives McDow--surprised me by organizing all the posts into a very attractive 70 page booklet, saved as a PDF file. He organized it into chapters with clickable links that will take you directly to the chosen topics. Also any URL's in the document to outside pages are live links.
Great job Rives and thanks again! I know how much time this takes. And my thanks to Rudy for cluing me in on how to publish the PDF on this forum.
I'm posting a link to the PDF below and will include a link in the Blog section of my Hangout home page. Feel free to copy, print or share the file if you like.
I hope to do a similar series on building the resonator and fabricating custom armrest and tailpiece in the near future.
