My battle plan

Monday, October 13, 2008

Boys im highly considerin buildin my own banjo, my grandpa owns a saw mill and ive worked with wood as long as i can remember so thats not a problem material wise. i thinkin a walnut fret board, store bought pegs probly just the $11 set of geared guitar pegs. the only damn thing im havin trouble with decidin is how i should make the head (without skinnin out a groundhog), hooks. and tail peice. i can buy the bridge and stuff but i want it to look rustic, have the beauty of natural wood with the fine grain and stuff so ill finish it with linseed oil but anyway like i said i want it to be home made i really would like it to be open back but that cuts down on strenth if i was to use a metal tin wash tub or somthin along that line. best i can figure is a small galvinized wash tub would be the way to go, but still again i dont want to buy a whole lot any suggestions would be appreciated greatly 2 comments
