The brass tension hoop, hooks and nuts are handmade from brass stock. The brass shoes are antique drawer pull hardware that I adapted.

I commented in your post, but I have to repeat it. That banjo looks fantastic. I love the look of raw brass hardware.

The brass will darken with age, but that'll be ok. The big challenge was making that hoop. I've done woodworking before, but not anything with metal. Thanks so much.
