Abolone truss rod cover for @snapjackson for his @deeringbanjos John Hartford model. A subtle way to add to the elegance of an already beautiful banjo.  #banjo #luthier #abalone
The fiddle edge is quite an elegant detail on this old National. #guitar #guitarrepair #luthier #national #resonator #resonatorguitar
Still playing catch up on previous #banjototw tunes. Here's @jdwilkes pick from a couple weeks ago, 'Leather Britches'. #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #clawhammer #oldtimebanjo @cwdeanbanjos @dustyleeelmer @zacpelo
A very cool 30's National Fiddle Edge Dobro on the bench for a neck reset. #guitar #resonatorguitar #luthier #guitarrepair #dobro #resonator
'Last Chance' for this weeks #banjototw played here in gDGDE. Wishing I had the 60 second capability for this one as there's so much you can do with it. #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #clawhammer #oldtimebanjo @jdwilkes @zacpelo @dustyleeelmer @cwdeanbanjos
Some really nice Birdseye figure on the resonator neck. #guitar #guitarmaker #luthier #birdseyemaple #resonator #resonatorguitar
Sometimes experimental projects remind you that it's an experiment. I had a feeling this would happen exactly like this but we took the risk anyway. To answer people's previous questions, no, acrylic will not work for a dowel stick under string tension. It fractures. And so the briar banjolin project continues......headed for a morta dowel stick to match the neck as originally planned. That will hold the tension nicely. Someday, this piece will make music. It sounded pretty good for the 15 seconds I had it strung up at least, so that's promising. #fubarfriday
For someone who very rarely does high gloss finishes I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. #banjo #mandolin #banjolin #luthier #vermontfreehand @vermontfreehand
The briar banjolin getting final buffed. This one is finally coming together this weekend. It's been a long time coming. #banjo #banjolin #luthier #pipemaking #pipemaker #vermontfreehand @vermontfreehand

Picked up a cool original Bacon Banjo wrench with that pile of old banjos the other day. Everyone needs a bacon wrench kicking around. #banjo #baconbanjo #baconwrench #handtoolthursday #luthier
Another catchup banjo tune of the week from a few weeks ago. @zacpelo 's pick of 'As Time Draws Near' aka 'The Blackest Crow'. One of my all time favorite melodies. I'd never played it on fretless before so I figured it would be the perfect time to showcase the Pi banjo that I recently completed. Played in a low B tuning. #banjototw #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #clawhammer #luthier #fretlessbanjo #luthier @dustyleeelmer @jdwilkes @cwdeanbanjos

Finally catching up on the banjo tune of the week! I've been a little too busy to stay in the mix lately but I'm determined to catch up this week. Here's @dustyleeelmer 's pick from a few weeks ago, Cuffy. This is played on the JB Schall I just finished restoring. #banjo #banjototw #clawhammerbanjo #dropthumbsnotbombs #clawhammer #luthier @jdwilkes @zacpelo @cwdeanbanjos
Slotted vents I spun this morning in place on the resonator. This design comes from the original Del Vecchio that has inspired this project. #guitar #guitarmaker #resonator #resonatorguitar #luthier
A JB Schall restoration all finished up. Restrung today for the first time in many many years. Needed a neck reset, a good cleaning, a new head, some missing hardware replaced, and it got a tuner upgrade. Ready for another 100 years. #banjo #banjorestoration #repair #luthier
Spinning some vent covers for the resonator guitar. #metalspinning #resonator #resonatorguitar #guitar #luthier #guitarmaker
Went on a road trip yesterday and picked up a pile of old banjos. Mostly only good for the clad rims but got some real gems. #banjo #luthier
The Pi banjo has strings! I always love making and playing fretless banjos. #banjo #luthier #banjomaker #clawhammerbanjo #clawhammer #oldtimemusic #pi #math
Reassembling a Vega rim after cleaning. #banjo #luthier #banjorepair
