So, I have a Deering Americana. Because it has a weird number (16) of (flat) hooks and a 12" pot, it's tough to find a good wood armrest for it. I have one from banjoteacher for a different instrument, and this is all I want for my Americana. The beveled shape, where it doesn't have a sharp angle - something I have never understood about the design of many armrests.  In a light curly maple to match the all-blonde Americana.

I'm not sure if this is the right section for this request, but if any builders here are down to make one, or know someone that sells one that'll fit my make/model, please let me know!  Thanks.

I find DIY very gratifying. You learn by doing. I don't understand why more people don't try.

David, I think sometimes people just don't know where to start, have the tools, or have little confidence in their ability.

Ikarian , check out the following armrest.... it would work just fine I believe with your Americana. I'm thinking I might get one as well. The guy who makes them (bluegrassjunkie ) is also a member here. I really like how this thing mounts vs the way others mount as it uses the tension hooks.
