Great job Jay, I know nothing about building musical instruments and from what I've read I don't think it's something I would ever attempt.. How long did it take to finish? Congrats.

Another instrument maker on here! I was starting to get a bit lonely

Lovely looking instrument, Jay. Do you have any pictures of the build in progress? What did you you use for the body former? I once saw a list of truck brake-drums (by model and year) available in US scrap yards that could be used as banjo formers
