I am very late writing this update, but I can still remember a lot of what happened in April. My first project was banjo #111, which is another walnut C scale and can be seen on the Banjos page.
I made two squareneck resonator guitars back in 2014 or so, and the second one sold last summer. I had been meaning to make another one for a while and I finally got it done in April. This is my first walnut resonator and my first bound headstock. It’s shown on the Guitars page. I made a primitive go-bar press while I was building this resonator and used it for several of the steps, and I am very pleased with how much easier it makes the clamping of large assemblies. I didn’t think to take any pictures of it in use but I’ll take one next time I use it.
I made two necks in April, the first was an asymmetrical slothead design.
The second neck was a shorter scale length for a uniquely designed mountain banjo pot and was supplied unfinished.
My last project completed in April was a walnut custom banjo (#112) with a fatter neck and a few other alterations from what I normally build.
