Daniel Gough's Banjo

Daniel Gough’s Banjo

Daniel completed his banjo over nine days during the school Easter holidays, 2015.

  • Daniel made a great job of the instrument.  It plays well and feels good to hold.
  • The neck is built from layers of hardwood, including poplar and meranti.
  • The peg head has a meranti veneer with a poplar inlay.  He laser cut a skull motif inlay for it.
  • The rim /pot was brick-built from various hardwoods and turned on the wood lathe.
  • Daniel chose to stain the calf skin with coffee, to achieve a deep brown colour.
