A gorgeous Walnut king size bed in the Dorset Custom Furniture shop. #dorsetcustomfurniture #woodworking #furniture #custom #bed #handmade  (at Dorset Custom Furniture)
Interesting shot that shows the two neck profiles of a 5-string neck. Because of the bump there’s the lower profile and the higher profile that transition at the fifth string usually with two different center lines. I shape both profiles first separately and then carve the peghead transition, fifth string transition and then the heel. #seedersintruments #banjo #luthier #handmade #woodwork #carving #nosecrets (at seeders instruments)
As mentioned, this Santos Mahogany carves beautifully. Thankful I got the grain running down the neck. If it was going the other way, I’d be singing a different tune. #seedersintruments #banjo #luthier #carving  (at seeders instruments)

This old mahogany (maybe) my client sent carves like a dream. I think it may be Santos mahogany but I’m not exactly sure. Super hard but carves easily and has a distinct smell that’s similar to Honduran mahogany but a little different. Psyched to have a few more blanks of this stuff for future projects. #seedersinstruments #banjo #luthier #wood #mahogany  (at seeders instruments)
Got a couple of sealer coats of the Tubaphone neck. This thing is turning into one of my favorites so far. #seedersinstruments #banjo #luthier  (at seeders instruments)
Getting the new drilling jig all dialed in today. This thing is going to make drilling for a dowel so much more accurate. Banjo neck resets will be a dream once this is dialed in. Any angle and height with infinite adjustability. All about having the right tool for the job. The prototype jig is working well, aluminum version to follow. #seedersinstruments #banjo #luthier #mill #woodworking  (at seeders instruments)
Drilling the fifth string tuner hole. Getting close to getting some finish on this one. #seedersinstruments #banjo #luthier  (at seeders instruments)
