That video was good fun and an inspiring way to spend the 8 minutes it took to watch it. Thanks for sharing this KDH.

Thanks Glenn. How was your Thanksgiving? I have to watch those videos with the sound turned off, the music overlay grates on my one nerve I have left. But with that said, I've gotten lots of ideas from them. They post "How to" videos on tool jigs, making a drill press, disk sanders etc. All with the same nerve grinding music. LOL

When it comes to that backing musical track, I relate to what you're saying, KDH. For my taste, the video is better without it. But like you said, I can just turn the volume off. Plus, silence helps me process information better than does sound; especially the monotony of a generic musical loop. 

And yessir, Scrap Wood City has a ton of really cool videos. I like the time-lapse stuff. Sure, it can raise questions about how to do a certain thing seen in the sped-up process, but I don't mind trying to figure out stuff on my own.

Thank you for asking about Thanksgiving. That day is always good for me. I am blessed in so many ways that it's impossible to not think of a long list of things for which to be grateful. This year my partner Farley and I were separated by a couple of thousand miles, which bummed me out. But I'm grateful that we both have decent health, roofs over our heads, and food on the tables to be shared with loved ones. So all things told, it was another terrific day of thanks. I hope for you the same, KDH. Did you have a happy Thanksgiving?

Sorry you didn't have Farley with you. It's always harder not having loved ones around. Anytime I wake up on the greenside of the grass I'm thankful. We had two dinners, one on Thursday and another tonight, boy am I stuffed. I came across another video to post, it's just a little more complexed.

Interesting to see how others do it, thanks Hooch. Also a good lesson in how to apply glue...not.

I built this wood top 5 string banjo without the use of a lathe for making the rim. But I suppose it depends on what timber you have to hand. 

Taff

Nice job Taff, I think if and when I take a shot at it I'll use steamed bands to make the drum.
