Banjo at home

Got some better pictures of the banjo yesterday. And sounds, too!

Please excuse the ropeyness of the following playing; I’d never played fretless until I built this:

Gourd Banjo workshop, day 5: the last day and the finished product

Be glad you can't smell Jeff cutting bone on the bandsaw
Finished bone tailpiece
Gourd with neck test-fitted
Pegs cut, drilled and doped
Mostly strung
Tailpiece, tail gut and cherry bridge
Jeff's workshop
Jeff helps Michael move some tacks
Michael and Jeff
Michael, Jeff, me — and our banjos
