so you bandsaw that to the right radius and angle, then chisel out the relief for the tension hoop ? I thought of using my table saw as a giant router with a jig and go over the top of the blade and cut it to 10" radius then use a 11" hand sanding drum and sanding it to 11" ? or will i just loose my banjo playing abillity through lack of fingers

I use a Dremel tool to cut the relief for the tension hoop. I have heard of people using a table saw to cut the radius, with the use of a jig to hold the neck vertically, and at an angle, that slid the neck into the blade from the side, but I have never tried it. It should work great as long as the jig is secure to the table, and the neck is clamped and is able to slide into the blade with accuracy.
