Default Bollero snare make over

Hello gentlemen ! Just thought I'd post a pic of my recently acquired (3 wks ago) Bollero, 10 lug snare drum. I thought I was going to keep the older/ black oyster sparkle wrap on, but I decided to remove the wrap (insert gnashing of teeth here) and stain the kit in a horizontal stripe design. As I was browsing the internet for ideas for this, I came across DW's twisted rainbow exotic veneer drums and thought that it might look nice on this snare, and would cover up the luan mahogany nicely. I put 3 coats of stain and sanding between coats, then another 2 without sanding. The stain has poly in it already, giving a nice contrast between the stained and unstained stripes. However, tomorrow I begin the tedious task of spraying a poly lacquer, and doing about 7 coats and sanding in between. This will take about another week, as I live in a condo and don't have an appropriate room to do this, so I have to go down to my storage room in my garage every time to spray in a ventilated area. I don't mind, as I have some recently acquired time, and hey, it's fun ! I ask that you please go easy on me, as this is my first attempt at doing this type of stain design. ..
Let me know what you guys think. Purist MIJ guys, i have already paid my respects to the snare's original look, so pls forgive me ! Here is a pic of the shell, and of a DW snare where I got the idea from.

Cheers,
Rob
