Birdseye Maple is never the wrong choice.

Same as this mahogany/walnut, and I even had room on this to account for the Walnut being a little narrower than the African mahogany.

Copper hardware just blows my mind. Where do you get it?

It is a custom mixed powder coat. Electrostatic charged powder is sprayed onto the part, then it gets baked in an oven. Really durable finish and I can mix whatever colour needed. I am partial to the Gun Metal colour myself.

Sneak peak at my latest build. It is a 13X7 snare made from spalted Bubinga. I made the lug casings out of Rosewood as well as the vent hole. DW throw will also get a wood veneer. So far I am building up an oil finish. If I can't get the desired sheen I will clear and polish

Sweet looking shell. Looks a lot like Maple, same characteristics?

Indeed, Araucaria gives more low ends. Kinda mix between Mahogany and Maple.

Some ovangkol segmented hoops I'm finishing today. Pictured here drying after their first shellac coat. Two more coats to go with sanding in-between coats, then about 5 applications of hard wax & buff to a nice lustre. Of course, never any stain ;)

Thanks :) Most wouldn't believe the work in those hoops. To the stage pictured, you're looking at 9 full days!!!

As for the finishing shop, I'm putting together some video clips of me running some shells through. Nothing fancy, should have it up within the week if you're interested. We'll only ever show finishing shop activities because many of the processes in the shell shop are proprietary.

Thought this might be of interest. It's the first time we've partnered American black walnut with ovangkol. 20" x 14" bass drum (part of a full set), both shell & hoops part way through construction/finishing. I think the visual works especially well :)

Thank you :) Just finished it up this morning. Crazy low clean fundamental with gut wrenching punch. Every design element working together beautifully as planned. I'm delighted!

14x5.5 10 lug snare. Same dimensions i dream of a steam bent ash in. Curse you for getting me on that free floating kit and choosing that snare for me to put on and making me fall in love with it. Loved that kit.... speaking of it, where is it now?
