    Did anyone else read this title as "1957 Waffle Snare"?

    Sam, that's certainly mahogany on the inner ply. Poplar in the middle. The outer layer is either maple or mahogany. Maple usually went on the stained shells since it's a lighter wood and took the stain better. Wrapped shells were usually mahogany on the outside. And not that Philippine "mahogany" you see now. Good, old growth, dense mahogany.

    Give us a parts needed list and I'll see if I have anything laying around. Your Classic strainer looks incomplete, and I just happen to have bought out an old music store's parts bin which included many Classic strainer parts. I'll look for some 15" rims, but my stacks of old rims are mostly 12", 13", 14" and 16".

    A what, now? They Jazz Festival didn't exist until they put a P-83 strainer on what was formerly known as the Ludwig Classic. And 15"x6" is a very odd size.

    Oh hell yeah! That's a drum I know of!

    Put up a thread in the vintage forum if you want to get any advice on it.

    I'm going to Ellis Drum Shop in St Paul Mn tomorrow. I hope they have 15 inch hoops and heads.
    SAManiac's kit is really freaking cool If I do say so myself...

    I do too! Looks much better than just the screw sticking out

    Not bad for a first attempt at wood turning
