So this is my Wife's 40th birthday present for December 26.
It is actually a $100 Banjo that I "Beaued" with some BRW veneer and various un used inlay portions I cobbled together from DePaul.

I stained the edge of the BRW to give it that old victorian look.

It is a total surprise so dont mention it on facebook etc :)

Truly beautiful.
Can I suggest you drop the phrase "cobbled together" when describing it to the missus ;-)

My god that's gorgeous. I must develop real inlay skills.

As an aside, the 26th of December is also my birthday.

We really need a LIKE button here.

Obviously your definition of "cobbled together" and mine are quite different.

My use of cobbled together usually involves bailing wire and duct tape.

Absolutely gorgeous, Beau. I'm sure she'll treasure it!

I refuse to accept that your wife is 40 years old and so should you, if you know what's good for you.:)
