Clifton would you be so kind as give the dimensions of the banjo you are pictured with here?
Scale length, pot size, neck heel width and overall neck length would be very helpful.

I sold that banjo as soon as I made it, but still remember its rough dimensions.

The pot was made from an 11-1/2" yellow poplar board, so pot diameter is at least 11 inches.

The neck was carved from a black walnut 3" X 3" of unknown length. I believe I left it at least 2-3/4" X 2-3/4" at the heel, tapering to 1-3/8" wide X 1-1/4 deep at the nut.

I left the peghead quite broad, probably 2-7/8" wide, tapering from the nut to a thickness of about 5/8".

The scale was ~ 27".
