BanjoCraft is a brief look at banjo making in the small shop. This book is intended to to be accessible to banjo people and wood workers of all skill levels. BanjoCraft contains 50+ full color photos and a great deal of detailed banjo making knowledge. BanjoCraft guides the reader through the process of making an open back banjo, from raw wood to a finished instrument. It focuses on building techniques and considerations that are specific to banjo making and does not delve deeply into sub-topics such as fretwork, inlay, or how to use a protractor. In composing this book it was our goal to provide general considerations, instructions, and techniques while encouraging the reader to get to work in the shop and cultivate experience of their own.
