    Default My New Snare...(which i made)...pics inside

    me and my dad decided to go to The Home Depot and pick up a plank of wood and make a **snare drum**
    i tried to get pics of everything we did...but sometime my dad got carried away and did some stuff on his own so i couln't get a pic of somethings...but if you really want to see what was done, just ask and i'll see what i can do.
    ...and yeah enough of this...time for pics

    Specs
    14x6.5 maple stave shell
    pearl/drum foundry hardware
    remo cpted emp. on top, ambass. snare on bottom

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    PICS


    cutting up a (about) 7 foot plank of maple wood


    the wood cut up in to 7" pieces


    a test piece (good to have a few of these)


    cutt the pieces of wood into smaller staves


    all the staves done...almost


    the center of the stave is marked


    cutting little slits into the side of the stave for the biscuits


    that hole that was cut for the biscuits.


    cutting the staves shorter to 6.5 inches.


    all the staves finally done!

    Holy crap, nice job

    I like all the detailed pics.

    I also really want to do that in the future, but I would need to buy a lathe.

    That.. is.. beautiful...

    For real man, that looks amazing. I'll bet it sounds even better!

    How'd you get all the pieces to stay together? Glue? or what? But man, awesome job!

    MIND_DRUMMER - the stave degree cut is 9 degrees on both sides......ill se if i can get a pic...and it's VERY LOUD and sounds soo beutiful


    antiviolent - yes it does sound even better!!

    i got the pieces to stay together by cutyting holes in the sides of the staves and attaching them with little oval shaped pices called "biscuits". and i used some elmer wood glue that you can get at a hardware store.




    thanks guys for all your support!
