Truly amazing! You do fabulous work!
The patience required to see a project like this to completion is amazing. Two years just to let the wood dry?! I'd never make it.
I love how you did the kick. Going to be a serious kit. Really glad you shared this process. Keep the updates coming.

I think I love to play the drums simply because you get to hit 'em!!!
What a beautiful project! I love what you created. It's so stunning.
Keep the updates coming

"It wasn't just his mighty pipes that made him Ronnie James Dio — it was his moral fervor...what always stood out was Dio's raging compassion for the lost rock & roll children in his audience. Dio never pretended to be one of the kids — he sang as an adult assuring us that we weren't alone in our suffering, and some day we might even be proud of conquering it."
Amazing work and a dedicated craftsman. I'm blown away!
Love your projects man! So keen to see the finished product!
Keeping the thread from drifting away. Still plugging away, since last update I have cleaned up the shells via sanding, completed all the bearing edges and snare bed. I added a splash of colour to the wood using some orange wash. And pictured here is the shells after the initial fill in coat of clear urethane. I will add a few more coats and then sand it back and lightly polish, hopefully ending up with a semi gloss.
Was hoping to have these ready for my next gig, but that is on the 25th of Feb. Doubt I will make that deadline.
So impressed by you guys that build drums like this. Amazing!

Wet sanded and sprayed the last of my clear coat last night. Now installing my signature vents.
And I got this maple beauty ready for a special order. One of my hardware suppliers supplied me with some 100 year old maple flooring torn up from an old factory that was torn down. 6 1/2 X 14" with a 30 degree back cut to get his edges part way started. He wants to do the edges, bed, finish assembly. Should be an amazing snare.
Awesome. Those Birch shells are ENTIRELY too beautiful for someone like me to even THINK of playing. I believe I would set them up, sit back in a chair....and drink beer while staring at them all day.
"Too many crappy used drum stuff to list"
Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!
"I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
Oh man...that's just so beautiful. Who's the lucky drummer getting this work of "art"?
Oh wow!! I'm drooling....
All done with no time to spare. Zapped the heads on with a Dewalt screw gun and headed in to Phase One Studios in Toronto. Amazing facility responsible for countless top shelf albums, sadly, closing this fall.
The kit performed beyond expectations, the producer made many comments how great they sounded, did not have to touch a thing, no long exercises with EQ and tape, gates etc.
Our song is still getting mastered, will post up when we get back the final copy.
Again, you did an amazing job on this set....................what a great find in the wood resource.
The finished product looks remarkable and anyone can quickly see you have a real passion and talent for the art of drum-making.
Congratulations on another fine project.

Signia...amazing set of skills you have! I wish I could hear the kit that studio setting. I bet it sounds amazing but I beg to ask...why the sub-kick? Wasn't there enough bottom end coming out of that kick? Thanks!
