Latest project finished yesterday, metal body banjo with a completely broken neck. The only thing holding it together was the FB. 
Made a new neck and added rosewood binding to make it wider due to the player having big hands, then edge binding. Also used some of the old frets by moving them up and put new ones in

Nice work @rocknroller912. I think it's harder doing repairs than building from scratch so very well done with that one.

@russ 

Thanks the banjo has gone back to its owner now and my stress level has gone back down. Difficult with jobs like this not to make the repair more than the cost of the instrument. Free wood helps.
