Reply To: Completed kit builds

Nicolas Hendrick

Hi everyone,
I’d like to share these photos here because this is my first Carver banjo that I’ve built and I’m very proud of the final result.
I followed Brian’s tutorial very carefully. I didn’t have any particular difficulty, but I was apprehensive when it came to placing the goatskin. In the end, I took my time and it turned out well. Actually, I was afraid of piercing the skin, but it’s impressive how strong it is.

I applied three coats of dark “ebony” oil and since the nut and bridge are black, I thought it would be nice to have theses ebony pegs.
English isn’t my first language so I’m really sorry if I’ve written an incomprehensible sentence.

Please let me know what you think 🙂
