Project Details

AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE (visit store for pricing) While at the Hazel River Art and Antiques in Washington, VA I came across a gourd in rough shape. Someone had drawn a tie and jacket on the gourd to make it look like a pot-bellied person. I thought it would make a cute little banjo….so I made it into one. It is one of my favorite banjos I have made to date. It sounds so warm and full even for such a little thing. For process shots of its making, and to hear it, you can head over to my instagram feed.
