I bought this drum for a very low cost and all I have had to purchase so far is a Gibralter strainer, but I am considering new repop beaver tail lugs. Never had a 15" snare drum, cant wait to play it.
No Jeff, Real builders build them that way. Bit more stagger on the slanted joints and of course, a round drum oven and presto, The SONOR full vibrating shell.
That`s how SONOR does them but all at once. Then Bookmatch veneer the finishes in and out. My Phonics went into that factory as logs.

It`ll hold. You got about two inches lap and you did a great job on the joints.

Thank you Odball,

I did get the veneer done late last night, it came out good. Earlier I took the shell to my sanding table and trued up/flattened the edges so now I need to rout a round edge to the
exterior of the shell. Then its time for the spray gun.

Thanks Glenn!

Here is a pic of the inside. I stained the patch to match the existing mahogany. Also did new edges.

Jeff - You're the best man - killer job ! Wish I'd had the space (and cash) to buy that WFL kit you restored for John (Purdie Shuffle) when it was available. I thought it was over the top cool.

Thank you everyone, your too kind!

Drum Doug, yes that was a very cool WFL kit that John sold but to be clear all I did was apply the veneer and finish, John did the rest and was the brains of the project.

Hope to get some finish on the shell tomorrow.
