    It would be really easy. Just get a couple of 1X4's take your hoop of your floor tom and trace the radius. Use a jigsaw and cut that out. Take another 1X4 and make the bottom of the cradle.

    What about the part to clip the bass pedal onto?

    Just leave a lip on the 1X4 base and attach it there. If its to thick just cut the wood down a bit.
    I just had an idea! To keep the drum from sliding, if your positioned the upright of the stand just right you could put a bolt in it that goes into the leg holder of the drum.

    Hmmm, I didn't think about that. That might be where the legs would come in handy. Maybe attaching those pedal stabilizer spikes to a lip in the front would work?

    Or just velcro on the baseplate.

    there's 3 ways I've seen it done. 1 Pearl type optimount 2 a basket that holds the drum up a la DW and the Danmar mounts (too expensive) and the kind that makes the spurs longer and has a riser for the pedal to attach to. I like my little $20 Gibraltar riser, but I had a Ludwig 18" floor tom and the leg mounts fit my Ludwig "gull" style spurs from another kit, so I didn't have to get anything else...

    Ok, cool. I'm gonna be gone for a few days, so I'm guessing this'll sink to the bottom. I might try to figure out how to be innovative, here.

    I've tried a few versions. I made a wood cradle. I made my own version of the trick mount using some bolts, washershers, nuts, an old LP claw, and angle iron for the base/pedal clamping area (that I hung from a cut down Gibraltar rack using an L arm into a leg clamp, avoiding bending up tom legs for spurs). I finally did go with the JG16 from Pearl. I tried it with an Optimount but the ISS works much better since it can swivel a little when setting it up. It DOES NOT bend the rim.

    If you make your own out of wood, I recommend adding a angle or flat piece of sheet metal to clamp the pedal to firmly.

    Since the bass is now so small, I found it easiest to use a snare stand for the tom if using stands for a 12" tom. Mounting the tom to the small bass, except for the Dunnett mount for L arm mount toms, is too big a hassle and requires permanent mounts.

    It uses two existing leg mounts for the bass drum spurs and the remaining mount for the tom.

    $79.00

    This looks really cool, and I might do this to my 15" floor tom and buy the 18" bass as well. Does the top section cause any damage to the floor tom though? Seems like a lot of pressure on there from holding a drum. I would be using a 10" drum up there, but was not sure what you guys thought...

    and Dunnett's pedal mount looks almost like the $20 Gibraltar one I have...

    I'll second or third the fact that an ISS mount isn't going to hurt anything. The Pearl JG16 is probably the cheapest and easiest ways to get the job done, and no hoops will be bent in the process.
