Josh House 000 Mahogany Steel String Natural, 2019

Here we have a lovely Josh House 000 model built in May of 2019 with Mahogany for the top, sides, back and neck, and Ziricote for the bridge, head plate and fingerboard.

Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

Dave Mills 5 String Openback Banjo with Frailing Scoop, 2018

This neatly constructed Dave Mills 5 string openback banjo uses a 12 inch pot with a spun-over Maple rim and Dobson-style tone ring, and a 3-piece Maple neck with an Ebony fingerboard that carries a frailing scoop. The Maple used on the rim and neck has a very convincing Cherry stain – so convincing that even our repair shop staff thought it was cherry from a short distance!     The head uses a traditional ‘paddle’ outline.

Boucher LTD OMH Moonwood and Walnut, 2020

Boucher LTD OMH Moonwood and Walnut, 2020

Here’s something special – a Boucher LTD OMH built with Flamed Black Walnut for the sides and back, and Adirondack Spruce in a Moonwood form for the top. Moonwood is not a specific variety of any kind of wood species. Rather, the name refers to when it was harvested; at varying seasons and phases of the moon, sap content is higher or lower. During autumn and winter, when the tree is moving to hibernation, and just before the new moon, sap content is at its lowest.
