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.
Thanks to @dixiesarno who loaned me some fancy photography equipment to document my current banjo build. Waiting for the oil to dry before assembly. But this a preview of the 12" rim. #banjobuilding#amateurluthier

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
