The weather outside has warmed up a bit, and I hooked up the propane heater in the shop. Finally a day in the shop. Lunch breaks progress so far. She's gonna be pretty.

While I will need a lot of improvement over the years to come, I do love the look of this inlay-less fingerboard! Check out @_osb___ for more details. Open Source Banjos, where we know that the creative force should not be looked to be held down. Yet it should flow with abundance! #osbgreenville #banjogram #banjos #luthier #banjobuilding #banjolife #hashitup

Me and Driver decided today would be a good day to work on some old projects I had laying around. Hope to have this mounted on a gourd (or a wooden bowl) and playing in the next week or two. #wannabeluthier #gourdbanjo #banjobuilding #squirrelbanjo #tennesseebanjo #smokehamsnotdope #handmade #flushfret

I finally modified the case I built for my deering, to fit the banjo I made. #woodwork #banjobuilding #makestuff
Who needs a 5th-string banjo nut when you've got a slot head screw just lying about? #diybanjo #homemadebanjo #banjobuilding @joe_harmonica
Started to build my second fretless banjo today.
Watch out @romerobanjos :P

A forest of clamps. The first two rings are done and now glueing on the rough sized third ring before the last round of the router. #banjobuilding  #woodworking  #smallshop
Routing the inside of a circle to build up s banjo rim. A lathe would be nice but in my tiny shop I don't have room. I clamp guides to the router table to help brace the piece and work slowly so the bit doesn't catch and throw the ring across the room...

Knitting almost done. Thought it it would go fast with baby clothes but this one took forever. Sweatshop style in the end. And as you might have noticed, no banjos lately which is due to my lack of a decent workshop. Will move from Stockholm in a month and start to set up a small workshop there. Finally!! #banjo #banjobyggare #banjobuilding #knitting #sweatshop

Cherry blossom in Cherry wood. Since there won't he a fifth string peg, I got the idea to add some decoration there, while burning in my logo on the backside of the headstock.
