Things have been crazy busy around Buzzard Mountain HQ these last couple of weeks, so I thought it was time to post an update on a few of the projects I am currently working through.
First up is a sneak peek at the Somerset S7 Ukulele Prototype.
This is a shot of my Lathe set-up I use for turning the rims, in this case it's the rim for the S7. My set up is based in part on the lathes shown at Hickler Banjo.
Here is the nearly finished S7 neck blank.
I have also been working on a Somerset S3 Banjo as well. Here is the nearly finished neck.
In addition to all of that, I've been working on the BM09002 custom banjo. Here is the curly maple neck with Cocobolo stripe and custom headstock design.
And lastly I've finally have the fretboard and flush frets installed on "The Snooks" gourd banjo. The flush frets are inlaid Mahogany to match the neck wood.
Thats it for now folks, look for more info on all of these projects in the days and weeks to come.
