This is a "no mess" version of the fireside banjo kit, pulled off our assembly process AFTER we apply two coats of Watco oil to the neck and 3 coats of polyurethane to the disk. These are the same parts we use for our finished instruments. The "no mess" kit is ideal for workshops, apartment dwellers, folks in a hurry. No need to buy wood finishing products or deal with their fumes.
The remaining steps are: add tuning machines and other hardware, glue banjo together, and put on the strings.
We have pre-drilled the holes to insert screws and brads, so you will not need to locate a drill. You will need some glue ( we use Elmer's white glue which dries clear). You will need a hammer, small regular screwdriver, small phillips head screwdriver, and some wire cutters or pliers with a wire cutting jaw. Directions included.
Optionally, add an armrest.
