How To Build a Banjo









1. Plant a tree. I prefer black walnut.







2. When the tree has grown to just the right height and circumference (approximately 80 years), it is time to begin.



3. Look at the tree. Try to visualize the banjo within the tree.



4. With a chisel, remove the parts of the tree that are not a part of the banjo. For your safety, you may consider laying the tree on it's side before carving.








And that's all there is to building your very own banjo. Enjoy.

Sounds easy to me. I guess I'll have to wait until I'm 114-years-old to begin.
