    While I like the "meow"...the other pattern may be a better choice for the instrument visually.

    Made my mini planing tool to hollow this thing out. Sorry not a better view but had worked on my banjo and didn't feel like bending down and dragging it out :lol:

    Well that's the outer, the inner will have to wait on rest and the router to depart my banjo rim ;)

    Well, this has moved along a bit since I last ventured in. Looking good Dave. Chip away at the stone as they say. You’re doing better than me - I ain’t done Jack on any projects for months! All I’ve done is stare at bits of wood and doodle ideas on scrap!

    And how did I miss this first time around? Dang right - Aussies full of nasties, whereas Godzone is a LOT tamer! ;)

    I basically work in spurts then have to rest. Most neck work I can do from the side of my bed, then lay down or nap when needed. About ready BTW to shoot my Brotherhood Build as sanding is also easy from bedside, the hospital even gave me a handy water tub the bodies conveniently sitting on top :lol:

    I too live in a God zone. An hour from the Great Smoky Mountain national park,a half to a full hour away from 6 lakes with good fishing and don't get me started on the trout streams and rivers. To starve here is impossible unless you're incredibly lazy or tree hugger :lol:

    Well good night friend and God bless

    The tree huggers are why you still have some trees to look at, otherwise they'd be 2" x4"s like 140 years ago. .:)


    Forests are a resource, but they are also large, undeveloped swaths of land that can be converted for purposes such as agriculture and grazing. In North America, about half the forests in the eastern part of the continent were cut down for timber and farming between the 1600s and late 1800s, according to National Geographic.

    .060 white abs binding :) A lapsteel doesn't actually have or need frets, just markers where they WOULD be ;)
