Jim has always been a craftsman, having it in his blood passed from his great-grandfather, a cabinet maker and following into his father’s footsteps into yacht and boat building.
Jim took up playing the banjo a few years ago and straight away was hooked and started about thinking on making his own banjo, after being inspired by such makers as Jason Romero, Mac Traynham and Chuck Lee, to name but a few.
