Re: BANJOLELE REPAIR QUESTION

You're right, you'll have to remove the neck to get the old head off. The ring that the skin is wrapped around is called the flesh hoop (for whatever reason).

Re: maybe nobody noticed: Peruvian walnut at Rockler

I saw it a week ago and considered buying some for banjo rims. Looked like nice wood and at a good price. But I have recently received some American walnut as part of a load from my lumber supplier in Wisconsin. He delivers to my driveway in Minneapolis.
