Started the "Banjonator" a 3 string CBG using a 6" tamborine (sp?) as the resonator. I stole the idea. Since I'm old, shakey & don't see well, I screwed up cutting the hole, could have been the beer. I'm waiting on a new Cigar box. Any ideas on cutting a neat 6" hole? Holecutter?

Finished my reso build. Pics are on here somewhere. On my page, I think. Check it out.

Kyle,

Oops! Accidentally hit Add Comment. Anyway, a wooden biscuit is often made from thin hardwood, or sometimes from thin plywood. So a biscuit bridge is, typically for a , a round thin bridge that sits directly on the center of a resonator cone. The saddle then sits directly on this bridge.

Kyle,

Don't know if anyone answered your Q, so I'll have a go. A biscuit is a thin, either oval or round, piece of wood that is used to help hold two pieces of wood, usually planks or boards, together. A slot or mortise is cut in several places in the edge of both pieces, a biscuit is fitted into one slot, and then into the corresponding slot on the other side. The two planks or boards are glued, butted together, and clamped until dry. This is method typically used to make large tabletops, or other wide

Hi just joined the group building my first reso has anyone used a ring cake pan as a cone ??

This is excellent!

may be trivial to some of you, but I found out that the biscuit bridge (worked for the Dopyeras, works for me) is not necessarily the right choice when using small & rather heavy steel tin cones. Carving a lightweight banjo style brigde made it sound more lively any added volume.(will shave off an additional 1 or 2 grams & give it a shape for the build I'm planning)
