The drum project

November 4, 2008

While I wait for the coffee to kick in, and the lines at the polls to go down, I can blog.

This summer my husband and I decided to build a drum for him. We took an oversized floor tom (or maybe it’s a small bass drum on it’s side) and made it into our version of a cocktail kit. He did all the research and ordered all the parts, I helped measure and drill the holes, and then the staining.  He spent time while I played with stain adapting the new bass drum pedal.  He had to change it to hit the bottom side of the new drum.
