I did however, finish off Joseph's lovely little mountain banjo, which I'm very pleased with. I'll be shipping this one off to Denver, Colorado next week.
Since my camcorder has packed in, I thought I'd try out the video function on my cheapo phone, not too bad! I also recorded a better quality audio file on my zoom H2N, check 'em out :)

My son and I have managed to get a bit more done on his banjo (he certainly looks the part, in his dungarees and check shirt!!), he was hammering in the frets last night while I cut out the rather cool looking wolf on the back of the pot. We may have it complete before the end of the year!
