Step 1: Step 1a. Getting the Wood

Aquire a 70cm piece of wood, preferably 2-3cm thick, and 6-7cm wide. Get 4 pegged screws and screw them in 1cm lower from the highest leavings some of the screw sticking out. Add a fret holder out of any extra wood that you find. (Just cut 4 indents in it.) Your wood is now ready

Step 2: Step 2. Preparing the Tin

For the tin all you need to do is get a can opener and run it along the edge enough so the wood would fit through. Get a chisel or other sharp object then just cut it all out.

Step 3: Step 3. Fitting the Banjo

When you have the wood and the tin ready. Insert the wood into the tin and screw it down so it stays. Add 4 screws at the very bottom of the banjo. Add another fret on the cookie tin. After all of this then you are able to string the banjo with strings.
