« Part 2: Clamps Removed Part 3 of Banjo series Part 4: More Glue, More Clamps! »

I had a chance to make some progress on the banjo today.

Here I have some quartersawn sycamore glued to the sides of the head. When that is ready I will trim the edges and then glue some on the face and back.

Here I have started on the segments for the pot of the banjo. I made a template for routing the whole pot out and also a template for each segment. It takes 4 segments to make one ring and I will have 3 rings stacked on top of each other to make the completed pot.
