Here is my latest build - a fretless minstrel banjo.
12.25" tackhead steam bent white oak single ply pot.
Walnut burl peg head veneer, heel cap, and tailpiece
Hickory neck extension dowel stick, held in with a single wedge.
PegHed 4:1 tuning pegs

That is one beautiful piece of woodworking. Impressive job. You need to post sound bytes so we know it sounds as good as it looks.
Very nice! The oak rim looks great.
You did a wonderful job in building that banjo. It really looks good. Thanks for sharing it with us.
That is really nice! Interesting method for the 5th peg. Speaking of which, where did you source the peghed set?

Working simple is hard.
I am so impressed, everything just fits together elegantly.
Very, very well done, my young king.
Oooohhh! Nice job
Suspect they are Pegheds tuners, @JollyRogers
