Salutations ,
The bait store down from my home often alligator turtles brought to them. I asked after a shell (which cannot be sold, but they will trade for tomato, beans and squash from my garden when it comes in). Can a banjo be made from a shell?

There was some sort of shell instrument in Walt Disney's 20k leagues under the sea. :-)

Seriously, practically anything can be used for the body, as long as it can take the tension of the head. If you are worried about that, maybe place a normal pot inside the shell, and just use shell as outer decoration? Or use a inserted pot/framework to stiffen the shell?

Hope you can make one, I'd love to see it, being a turtle guy.
