I’m in the finishing stage of my current banjo build. I’m so excited about how it is turning out I had to post some pictures. The rim is segmented curly maple with quilted maple shop-made veneer and shaped on router table (I don’t have a lathe). Neck is curly maple and headstock is maple burl. This is after 10 coats of tru oil - 5 more to go.

Thanks everyone! I have to admit, it is the prettiest thing I’ve ever made. I keep feeling pressure not to screw it up.
