It's been a beautiful weekend here in the sunny south, the temperature has been around 80F with a nice cool breeze blowing and the sun a shinnin'. I have spend\t most of the last few days turning rims for the various Somerset Banjos. I thought I would share a few more photos of this work.
This is a rough S1 rim blank attached to my lathe.
This view is after it has been turned to the rough outside diameter and the tone ring has been fitted.
The last view is after I flip the rim over and cut it to length and radius off the bottom.
Here is a view of all the rims I've been working on these last few days: 2 S1 Walnut rims, 1 S3 rim with Cocobolo Tone Ring and the S7 Prototype rim.
All of these rims are ready for the holes to be drilled, which is what I will be working on come Monday morning.
Lastly, I thought some of you might be interested in seeing the Buzzard Mountain Mascot. Now, I know most of you probably assume that it is a trained Buzzard, but all of my efforts to catch and tame one have failed. So instead I have a Samson!
You can find more pics of Samson at my old Flickr Stream.
