How to build a 4 string Tennis Racquet Banjo

find an unwarped old wooden tennis racquet
cut and shape a headstock
 fit tuners and ferules
make sure one side of racquet head is smooth
 sand down one side of the handle
make a tension ring to fit inside the raquet head
Cut and sand the ring to size...drilling inside the ring helps saw access
pegs or scrap wood will hold the ring in place
get an old drum head
glue and staple the cut head to racquet and glue headstock
carefully drill pegs and add screws to hold tension ring in place
fit a bridge and nut
 add screws to the tail to hold strings
tune and play
