Walking Boss - a song I heard by Clarence Ashley and doc Watson. Played on the first banjo I made from scratch, now belongs to my father in law. #oldtimemusic #clawhammer #banjo #gourdbanjo

First time using a beeswax finish. I almost set the peg head on fire with the heat gun. #banjo #banjobuilding #gourdbanjo

I got me a Menzies! Been an admirer of @menziesinstruments banjos for over a decade and his instruments were an early influence on my builds (they still are). Love it. #gourdbanjo #fretless #custombanjo

Leonard Webb appears in Foxfire Book 6. Interviewed in 1977, Leonard shared a lot of information with the students, but his love was building gourd banjos - a process he explained in great detail in his interview. We've had several encounters with folks who made their own gourd banjos based on the Leonard Webb article. Have you been able to carry out a process from the Foxfire magazines or books? We'd love to hear (and see) what you've made based on instructions from our contacts.

The famous Bob Thornburg "Sheep Brains" box banjo. Bob Thornburg makes amazing gourd, grain measure, and box banjos. He made this one for me several years ago and it's one of my favorite instruments of all time. Great deep sound. The writing on the box says "Sheep Brains 3 Gross". Gotta love it!
