Many banjos in the late 1800 early 1900 were made with a metal spunover Rim, now some banjo makers as meself are making again such a kind of banjo, I just started to build a banjolele with a "spunover" copper Rim.
Once the metal rim is ready a Maple rim is fitted inside.
Now after the silver soldering it need some polishing...

Nice work ..That takes skill..Pity you don't have access to a spinning lathe, then it could be done in one piece.

Good work- spunover rims are cool and sound great too.
