Pot banjo guitar I made from a piece of almond wood and an aluminum pot…....I only had hand tools and an electric drill to work with…...the fingerboard is purple heart as is the headstock overlay… has a pickup…....It stays in tune and plays very well

-- Let's see......what can I use this for?

Looks great! If only that banjo had a fifth string, Scruggs would play it in a heartbeat.

Looks great. I think it’s great that you work with hand tools. Great stress reliever.
