Scott Nicoll's Banjo

Scott Nicoll’s Banjo

Scott completed his banjo over five days during the school Easter holidays, 2015.

  • Scott was unable to attend the first week of the workshop.  To ensure that he’d be able to complete an instrument, he was provided with a partly formed neck.
  • Scott made a great job of the instrument.  It plays well and feels good to hold.
  • The neck is built from layers of pine, with a walnut finger board.
  • The rim /pot was brick-built from various hardwoods and turned on the wood lathe.
  • Scott chose to stain the calf skin with coffee, to achieve a deep brown colour.
