Good luck with the project. Looking forward to seeing the progress. Are you going to wrap them or go with a wood finish?

Interested to see those all together and wrapped. I did a project like that with Slingerland orphan mahogany shell's. Came out nice.

It will be interesting to see if the two WMP shells are painted white on the outside, because of the darker mahogany shell possibly showing through the wrap.
