This month has been busy in the shop, but for the first time in a while I haven’t had any custom instruments to build, so I’ve had a chance to make some instruments to restock. Banjos 125-128 are shown on the Banjos page, and fiddle #23 is on the Fiddles page. Banjo #129 is the prize in a free drawing on BanjoHangout.org which started today and is running through sometime in late December, as I understand it.
Right now I am making a rim and a tension hoop for someone, and a tone ring for someone else. My next planned projects are to make another 12″ walnut banjo, a curly maple parlor guitar (similar to the one I made in October but right-handed) and a curly maple chicken head fiddle.
