Spare Moments?

In spare moments (which I don't really have) over the last week or so, I've been building a banjo for someone who needs one. I built it from bits, but have done the finish (still not quite ready), fitted the neck, inlaid mother of pearl markers and decoration, and carved the neck scoop myself.







Here is the first tune ever to come from this instrument. The tune is, roughly, Rhymeside by Catherine Tickell.

It looks and sounds impossibly beautiful.
