It took a while to remember where I was up to, but I think I'm now ready to really get stuck in next week.
The plan is to get Bob's tackhead ready for oiling by the end of the week, followed closely by the Walnut 'Dobson' stock banjo(I'm fed up having it laying around the workshop!), both should be complete by the end of September.
I'm also hoping to have Roger's tackhead and Corentin's mountain banjo well on the way by the end of Septemeber, which will leave October and November free to continue with Stephen's open back, start on Mike's fretless and finish Bob's mountain banjo. I can then get on with Rainier's 'classic' style open back in Decemeber, and that'll be another year done and dusted, scary!!
Below are a few pics of what's what. No picture of Stephen's or the Walnut banjo, as they still look the same as my last post (but not for long ;)
