Hey Old Time Community, this banjo needs a new home!  Check out @banjobeulah365 page for further detail, she wants to auction this pretty parts banjer to benefit her Aunts family who lost their home to Irma!

Guess there wont be any gourd banjos this season. Unless I do miniature ones. #banjobyggare #banjobuilding #fretlessbass #growing #gourdbanjo #gourd
New head for my first electric banjo came in today! #banjo #remo #notremo #drumheads #banjobuilding #eclipse2017 #banjogram #luthier #stringedinstrument #banjos
I haven't used a lathe since 8th grade... it took a little bit of trial and a whole lot of error, but I'm pretty stoked on how this walnut rim turned out. #banjobuilding #banjo #lathe #woodworking #luthiery
The banjo next to its inlay inspiration. #gotland #närsholmen
#banjobuilding #clawhammerbanjo #woodworking #swedish #banjobyggare
Took some pictures of the närsholmen banjo besides the lighthouse that inspired the peghead inlay. Wanted the the last sun of the day to hit the lighthouse. Managed to get the pic with a 3 min margin before the sun disappeared. Phue. Here is a behind the scene shot. #banjobuilding #clawhammerbanjo #woodworking #swedish #banjobyggare #wood #photography
Seat of the pants neck reset on my friends banjo with tools at hand....#oldtimeisagoodtime #banjobuilding #banjobuilder
Here visiting my family in Carlsbad. Checking out the Museum of Making Music. Was really cool. #awesomepix #banjogram #banjobuilding
Block rim is glued and ready for turning, getting closer to becoming a banjo. #woodworking #lutherie #luthier #lathe #banjo #banjobuilding #madeinminnesota #walnut #growninminneaota
Another step closer. Assembled, checked, and just waiting to make the bridge, and string it up. #fretless #banjos #banjobuilding #tackhead
Just a few more coats of oil in the coming days and I'll be ready to put on the head and assemble. #banjo #banjobuilding #hanginginthewind
In all honesty, my previous attempt at making tuning pegs was.... A borderline failure. The shafts were tapered wrong and the general design was bad. This is attempt number two and very much a better design and execution. The wood is Pau ferro.

Brass has higher malleability than bronze or zinc. The relatively low melting point, 1650-1720F make it an easy material to cast. By varying proportions of copper and zinc, the properties of brass can be changed, allowing hard and soft brasses. Wikipedia.

Details of the backstrap of my current banjo build. Inlay at lower portion of backstrap continues the theme of the inlay in the rim. The rim wood will eventually get ebonized. #amateurluthier #banjobuilding #banjoinlay #mopinlay #inlay #originalidea

Another never finished project. Didn't go along with this banjo so decided to remove the frets and make a new scoop. Now we like each other. Pictures are 5 months apart :) #banjobuilding #fetless #oldtimebanjo

Acorn inlay with wenge and walnut. Peg head shaped as an oak leaf. Pretty happy with the positioning of the 5th string. Lets hope that the customer will play a lot under a tree this summer. #banjobuilding #tenorbanjo #custombanjo #wenge #walnutwood
Squaring up some local walnut for a couple of new banjo projects #banjobuilder #banjobuilding #banjobuilders
Keeping it custom by reusing an offcut from the shoe stock to make a dowel bolt-nut. Classy. .

Spent some time with my first banjo build ever this weekend. #clawhammerbanjo #banjobuilding
Soon will the last banjo have its own custom strap. Weaving mania :) #banjobuilding #weaving #strap
It had some buzz that drove me crazy (you can see it in my face) but finally I found that it originated from the nut slot. Much happier now :) Photo by @fidelisundqvist #banjobuilding #banjo #tenorbanjo #vega #custombanjo
