Completed internal resonator pot

I got this done last Sunday and shipped it out on Monday.  It is a bit heavy at just under 6 pounds but 4 of that is the metal hardware.  It was an interesting project, especially learning to veneer the rim.  Yesterday I went to a sale where a furniture maker was selling out and got a bunch of veneer and some mahogany so I am looking forward to trying a mahogany banjo and learning more about veneer over the next few months.  This week I’ve been building an A scale flush fret walnut banjo and I’ll have more about that soon.  It’s getting the finish done now and I’m planning to set it up tomorrow evening.
