After building my gas can guitar, I thought that I would build a canjo, or “banjo out of a gas can”. Basically, the guitar with a 5th string. After doing some research, (web surfing), I ran across this plan for making a “real” banjo.
Here is my weekend progress on the neck of the banjo. It is made from three pieces of madrone laminated together with black walnut for the finger board, and quarter sawn sycamore for the peg head. I will use either ebony or a bone for the nut.
I don’t know anything about playing a banjo or building one, so this should be an adventure.
