Yes I would agree that the results were awesome.
So just got a email from the builder of my cherry shell. Right now it has 6 coats of clear and is getting a few more tonight. Tomorrow it ships so hopefully I will have it by the weekend. Depending on what amount of free time I have I may have the snare done by next week. Here are the two photos of the shell with 6 coats on. Any words of advice before I start drilling this thing? While I don't have the drum foundry mat I have a pdf file from another builder that will allow me to print a layout at a copy store. Very nervous and excited about putting this thing together. The next shell I get I will cut the edges and beds and do my own finishing.
