Wood Turning

Banjo

Felt like incorporating a new instrument into my life. Never played a banjo before so I figured the easiest way to learn would be to build one myself! There is a bit of a mishmash of woods here; sapele, purpleheart and ash body. Ash and maple neck with a marblewood fretboard and walnut headstock plate. Was lots of fun to turn the body and the coordinating rod (inside the body).

The body itself is segmented sapele with purpleheart stripes in the middle ring and ash at the bottom contoured for comfort.

Was lots of fun
